Right to Live

I need to be reminded

that I have a right to live.

I look at myself

and I don’t like all I see.

I stand

Facing the vastness of this Creation

The overwhelming beauty of this Firmament

The breathtaking landscapes and horizons of this Earth.

And I compare myself

to find myself so small,

almost insignificant.

And I feel terrified and lost.

Yet a voice speaks to me

and awakens my soul.

To remind me that I am called

to be a part of this creation

I am

alive to participate and contribute

to the Majesty of this Universe.

My Life

My Existence

Are necessary pieces

Called to be alive.

And I compare myself

And I find the Universe in Me.
