A good day to be alive
A good day to be alive my friend.
A Poem by Coyote Poetry
Each day is an opportunity to do something good.
(Can you Move? Can you Think? Do you have
the ability to do more? Life pleasures can’t
be reached locks up in sad and disappointing
lives. Get up. Reach out. No pity for those
swimming in self-pity.
Too many years in the Army.
Cornerstone of a good life are the kindness and love given and received.
Kind ancestors left us with gifts of love.
Needed to be passed on to our children.
Disappointment can barricade our mind and hearts.
We must breach the walls of disappointment.
Learn to celebrate being alive.
Correspond with your friends and family.
Tell them you miss and love them.
Remember lost friends.
Raised yourself up and fight the good fight.
Can’t swim in self-pity.
Don’t forfeit your dreams for someone else.
There are consequences for every action good or bad.
Aspire to touch the stars.
To dance on a lonely beach with a lover.
Sit at a park and watch your children play.
Thank the Spirit of life and death for one more day to be alive.
