BORN OF MIND, BODY, AND SPIRIT
I celebrate the day of my birth
Thankful to be present
Despite the hurdles at the onset
Getting older doesn’t cause me dread
It fills me with anticipation instead
I arrived ahead of schedule
My spirit ready before my body
Required nourishment for both
As thunder rolled and lightning struck
I entered the world ready to fight
I celebrate the joining of spirit with body
Though the two often spar
As time passes, my resilience deepens
And my intention to live a full life sometimes wanes
But I still seek balance in mind, body, and spirit
Fragile in body though strong of spirit
Led to an active and curious mind
As the three blend together, my life’s enhanced
And that’s worth celebrating not only annually, but daily!
