Today I arose

the same as the sun

stood tall,

the same as the trees.

Can it be, me and the world are as one?

Today is the day

like Spring I'm a cool breeze

blown the clouds away

thoughts now clear my mind,

free to drift away

far from here

like birds skimming under the clouds

stretching my wings as to hug the Earth like a father so proud.

Today I arose,

glad to be alive...
