Today I will tremble because I am in love with living.
It is good to be alive.
I will also bend in awe because I am grateful.
I can bend.
When I speak I will make sonnets in praise of nature and its manifestations
and respect the sun and all the waters on the earth,
They are not mine to trifle with.
I won’t always smile, but know that I have joy within despite my pains.
I am alive and I have so much to give,
Share a cup with me, dance one measure with me, and kiss my cheek as I caress your trusting hands,
Pilgrims we are on a verdant earth.
Who can disturb our joy?
You alone rule your destiny, chose freedom.
Think freely, that is your freedom.
Wisdom beckons us, go to her,
Think and be free.
