The Comfort And Joy Of Being Alive

Updated on May 19, 2010

The Best Kept Secret In The World

I don't have a clue what makes my body function so magnificently each time

My heart beats wonderfully and strong

I do know I have it easy

Because I don't have to decide what my body has to do

Like breathing to stay alive

 If it was up to me I would be in a constant state of limbo all the time

I always look at others and wonder what they think

Lucky I don't have to decide what rules they follow and choices they make

I feel healthy 99% of the time

What would I do if I was sick and couldn't be healthy no matter what I tried

I would just cry or curse the world and wish to die

What if I was a doctor and I had to decide choices for someones life

The pressure and stress of what if I made the right choice

What if I could see complicated formulas and knowledge so deep

That others wouldn't understand and care

How frustrating that would be

What if I was mentally and physically challanged and faced unsurmountable problems each day

Dependent on others so I can live and function

What would I do

 If I was old and couldn't talk no more

I would be lost in a world that I know longer could try to explain

I am here and going to give it everything I have

Thank God for one more day

I will give it a try and keep looking for answers in my progress

Just so happy to be alive

      Darlene Sabella I am sure there are so many people with so many illnesses and problems I could be sick to my stomach for a long time thinking about it.Instead I chose to make the most of every day and keeping all those people(in my thought and prayers) as a reminder not to give up.So I am fighting in a ring for them.If the shoe was on the other foot I would hope they would do the same for me.

      Life is the greatest treasure of all, and so often we spend it foolishly taxing ourselves far beyond the wealth we were granted. You make it simple, each day, each breath, each beat of our hearts is gold mined from our time, and each should be savored for it's incredible value. ~~~MFB III
