Life Is A Beautiful Gift

The moon, she is out tonight

Smiling at all the stars

Venus is setting behind her

All the frogs chirp as if they know who you are

A neighbor out wandering the night

A singer who’s feeling all right

A cherished and colorful mist of all things

This life is a beautiful gift

From my hands, to heaven I lift

All the prayers of thanks and bounty, recognition of all who came before

Those who blindly led us to right now,

Those who died blind not knowing how

To open their eyes and see

All the magic now within me

Resilience that I’ve never known

Only mountains within me have shown

The strength that I thought I lacked

Where the moon, she Always had my back

When the love from the stars carry me home

And within me, a child, she has grown

Check your space lately?

Had a heartfelt affirmation discussion w/a dear friend last night about how w/in social identity, the layers of understanding are a never ending journey, never will there be a destination where you can stop. The more you learn, the more there is to learn. This article in my New Yorker mag last week is a prime example: https://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2018/06/04/starbucks-and-the-issue-of-white-space
