Bliss of a Grateful Heart


There are days when I wake up in the morning and things are not the way I wished it would be… That’s when I have to tell myself that things will be better and the sun will still shine.
There are times when people hurt me and let me down…
That’s when I keep reminding myself to trust my own intuitions and judgments.
There are trials and challenges I have to face along the way,
That’s when I have to be strong despite my meekness for I will choose to stand and not to veer away to the wayside.
There are changes that I make in my life,
That’s when I have to struggle a stronger sense of myself.
I always tell myself to grow up and it’s always not easy.


Life is a game, an endless journey.
I have to play, otherwise; I will just stumble in the dark.
I have choices and it’s all up to me.
Somehow, I keep telling myself to stick on the good choices.
So when days come with frustrations and disappointments,
I will not quit. I will survive.


Moving ahead, forward and on,
Let me walk in the beauty and make my eyes behold the red and purple sunset.
Make my hands respect the things you have created with passion.
Make me wise so that I may understand the things hidden in every trees and rock.
And I may see the light in every tunnel.
The light that is holy and that the holy is the light-
Only by seeing, by being, I know…
Captivated, breath stilled- the bliss of a grateful heart. ..
