The Gift Of Life Read Count : 13

It is precious-it is gold
It can’t be bought -it can’t be sold 
It’s the first thing you see 
When you’re welcomed to life 
Challenged to live the quality life

It is a gift that’s fragile at times 
It’s the only one you’ll have
It meant to protect with all your might
To keep from the demon’s grab

Some struggle hard but their efforts fade
They’ve lost the will to fight 
They’ve given up their cherrished gift
That once was in their sight

Others battle mercilessly 
To hold on to what was was given
They refuse to surrender that sacred prize
They’re motivated and they’re driven 


How can one explain the differences
For choosing life or death 
Or choosing the persuit of happiness 
Rather than living a life  in the depth

The answer is for each to ponder
As tough as it may be
Being responsible for your own actions 
Leaves all the weight on “THEE”

  • This speaks volumes. Once upon a time ago, I probably would have looked at it differently. I wouldn't have given up on life, but I had given up on happiness. But today, I am a whole new person. I value the gift of life that's given to me for through effort and determination, I have found happiness. Thank you for this beautiful reminder. Another beautiful piece of gem. 💜
