    Waking in the morning
    With sleep in your eyes
    Wondering if the day is
    Going to be rainy or dry.

    As you get ready to go outside
    You take a deep breath
    Then fall to your knees
    With a great big si
    Being thankful for this day
    Knowing that one day
    You will die.

    You don’t feel sad, but actually glad
    Realizing that technically
    We are already dead.
    So we keep on living this life
    From day to glorious day
    Not worrying about keeping
    A single thing at bay

    For it has been told that one day

    I WILL LIVE!

    Mac.....

    Your poetry is such a
    inspiration to read
    if a man is judged by his fruit
    your penmanship has
    come forth as a powerful tool
    to share the words of the spirit.......nice flo
