Life

"To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to leave the world a little bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have
succeeded." ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

Life
Lisa Woodford

I sit
My face turned upward
Eyes closed
Showered with sunlight
Wind's long fingers tangling my hair
And I remember
how wonderful it was
to be born
I remember
how much I loved to run
as a child
(It was as close as I could come
to flying)
And I feel
the simple joy
of being alive
And I know peace
