Affirmation of Life

May 7th, 2013 · 4 Comments

This is a winning submission from Karil for the “Write Something to Share” contest.


I know it sounds like I want to die
And sometimes I think I do
Deep down though I know it’s not true
And so everyone should know too

I want to be better, healthy and free
To enjoy my life as it’s meant to be
But I am sick and no one can see
How much it hurts just to be me

I love this beautiful planet though
And so far I’ve refused to let go
I need to learn what I need to know
To learn how to fly
Instead of wanting to die

It feels disrespectful to feel this way
To want to throw this beautiful life away
I apologize to Mother Earth
And thank her for my very birth
Asking in prayer every day
For the Angels to help me find my way

So to my family and friends I say
That for now and ever I want to stay
And please be patient while I find my way
