Blessings I Enjoyed While On This Earth I Lived

Rating: 5.0


I have seen everything along my life's pathway
I have even seen the lightening and heard the roar of the thunder;
I have seen the mountains and fields everywhere on this earth
I have even seen the rivers and the lakes flowing along the valleys silently.

I have seen the oceans and seas rolling in waves
I have even seen the skies and clouds moving together like migrant families;
I have seen the forests and the deserts always growing denser year after year
I have even seen the animals and beasts hide in those trees of wilderness.

I have seen the birds and butterflies fight for survival though they are so weak
I have even seen the bees hovering around the honeycombs so enthusiastically;
I have seen the sun and the moon obeying their duties to rise and set amicably
I have even seen the stars sparkling in their constellations and amazing me;

I have seen blessings in all the things that belong to this universe
I have even seen simplicity in everything whether it was wild, rural or natural;
I have seen my own child developing in my womb
I have even seen parents bringing up their children with utmost care and diligence.

I have seen ceaseless dedication to truthfulness and honesty
I have even seen innocents retaliate to mischief and betrayal others create;
I have seen the envious resort to jealousy and competition
I have even seen disharmony reversing peace and platitude;

I have seen the joys of happiness and luxuries
I have even seen obstacles and hardships which fate never warns of;
I have seen endless solidarity and solemnity among families
I have even seen hatred and rivalry among siblings;

I have seen and estimated the futility of vengeance
I have even seen I had the opportunities to be victorious often;
I have seen I have never taken advantage of other's ignorance
I have even seen I have never chosen to defeat others by deprivation or destruction.

I have seen I have envisaged my life with courage and compassion
I have even seen I offered understanding to those who sought it;
I have seen I always conceptualized my future with peace and justice
I have even dedicated my humbleness to God as my prayer and worship;

I have seen grief in its intensity and sorrow in its propensity
I have even seen heartaches in its density yet I adapted to realities efficiently;
I have seen the day passing away as quickly as nightfall emerges
I have even been around the world yet recollections never isolated my memories.

I have seen friends coming and going by, without any hostility
I have seen that I have forgiven many of my enemies as I uphold clemency;
I have seen less of generosity and more of unkindness yet I endorsed humanity
I have even prayed to God to give me a hand when I will walk that pathway to Heaven.
