The Lesson – Maya Angelou

I keep on dying again.
Veins collapse, opening like the
Small fists of sleeping
Children.
Memory of old tombs,
Rotting flesh and worms do
Not convince me against
The challenge. The years
And cold defeat live deep in
Lines along my face.
They dull my eyes, yet
I keep on dying,
Because I love to live.

The Lesson – Maya Angelou

My family had the most amazing news yesterday. The past few months have been a struggle but have made me even more thankful for my life, for the health and happiness of my family and friends. Ultimately – they come first. When you have to be strong for them, step up. Most of all I am just thankful my padre can go on his trip back home that he thought wouldn’t happen. I have never seen him so happy, and that makes me happy :D
