As I open my eyes wide,
I know I am up for another chance.
Chance to grow, chance to change,
Chance to dance my life away.
As I sit upright at the edge of my bed,
Stretch my arm and open my mouth yawning,
I know I am free, and unrestricted
To receive more graces.
I know I am capable,
To be an angel to others,
So they can receive blessings too.
As I stand on my forefeet, firmly unto the floor,
I know I am ready, to fly,
To run and to embrace this brand new day.
As the warm water from the shower
Touches my lethargic skin,
I know I am blessed.
For others do not even have this necessity.
As the soft towel slides into my supple skin,
I know I am fortunate,
For these life’s comforts I always have.
As I savour my delicious breakfast,
I know my life is abundant and,
I do not have to worry.
As the sun rises and its rays kisses my face,
I know, from the bottom
Of my sometimes sceptical heart,
That I should be thankful!
That I should be grateful.
Because despite our world’s atrocities,
I am still alive, resilient and able,
To stand back up each and every mornings.
Thank you mornings!
Because of you,
I am always hopeful!
