how rare and beautiful it is to even exist

I’ve been on LSS with Sleeping at Last’s song “Saturn” for week now. It was a part of their first Astronomy-themed album where they sang deeply emotional songs about each planet. I like this one the most.

Lately, I feel like I’m stuck in a slump. Life has become monotonous with the advent of the “new normal” (the online internship and all) that I have to go through everyday. It’s exhausting.

Then I came across this song (thanks to my 3-month free Apple Music subscription)!

the universe was made

just to be seen by my eyes

with shortness of breath

i’ll explain the infinite

how rare and beautiful it is

to even exist

how rare and beautiful it is

if we truly exist

Saturn, Sleeping at Last

I’ve let the monotony of life take a toll on me. I’ve been forgetting one essential truth — MY EXISTENCE, THE EXISTENCE OF THIS UNIVERSE. The universe was made just to be seen by my eyes. I know, I know. Though I am quarantined inside this tiny four-walled room, the universe is here, with me, in me. There are books, there are songs, there are thoughts, there are people that make up this universe. It is here. And I’m not appreciating it that much.

The beauty of my existence is beyond my comprehension. My breath will not suffice to explain this infinity.

A lot of people around the world are battling to barely exist. And here I am taking mine for granted. The pandemic has tear down many universes and has banished the existence of many beautiful beings.

But here I am. Still here. Still breathing. Still existing.

Shouldn’t I be grateful? Shouldn’t I make the most out of this existence?

Truly, how rare and beautiful it is to even exist!
