I once saw a child gazing at the map of the world,
brows wrinkled with curiosity the way innocence ponders,
she tapped her map and asked me
“what are we doing here?”
i opened my heart to say
“Here we are magnificent creations that come bearing gifts,
we are inheritors of treasures, designed to rule.
Here we are more than breaths,
we are living life alive guided on the eternal path of love,
Here, we are something greater than seen.
I opened my mouth and said
“we are spiritual dynamites shattering
darkness with our inner lights.
Here we are writing our stories,
everyday a quest to create happy endings.
