What Will You Do With It?


Just to be here is a gift.
Just now, this breath is a treasure.
Look around you,
wonders everywhere,
precious beyond description.
A body that has carried you through life,
earth that has risen to meet your footsteps,
countless rains and days of sun
and the impulse to thrive
have grown your food.
Ancestors that survived
to make this moment possible–
just for you.
You have eyes that see
and a mind that can interpret
these symbols and make meaning
from them–how amazing!
Your hands, capable of creating so much.
Your heart and the ocean of feeling
it contains.
This life!
Such a precious life.
What will you do with it?
