My ancestors walk with me.

They live on in my DNA.

 

An English sailor.

A German farmer.

An Italian factory worker.

A Spanish settler in Mexico.

An Aztec Warrior.

A West African slave.

 

How did you survive disease?

War-torn countries.

Blatant racism.

Food scarcity.

Unbearable suffering.

 

Because of your perseverance & strength.

I have this opportunity to live.

Thank you.

Gratitude.

I breathe in.

I smile.

How wonderful it is to be alive!

 

Joy pulsates through my body.

A smile lights across my face.

My heart beats with compassion.

My lungs full of gratitude.

 

Grateful for pain.

Heartbreak.

My breath.

And Joy.

Grateful to be alive.

 

I will smile.

I will laugh.

I will dance.

For life is impermanent.

 

Thank you life.

Thank you impermanence.

Thank you.
