Yes, Today I Will Celebrate Life - Poem by Rani Turton

Yes, today I will celebrate life
Put my cloak of sadness aside.

I, the poet, the wanderer who changed worlds
Crossed seas and sought my destiny.

Mudstained, weary but still reflecting:
Outside the tavern door sits an old man

I ask my way; he points inside
So inside I go to rest and dream.

Today, I will rest from worldly preoccupations.
Today, I will celebrate life.

    ask my way; he points inside
    So inside I go to rest and dream.

    Today, I will rest from worldly preoccupations.
    Today, I will celebrate life.

    Lovely lines, great wisdom in them.
