But for this one day.
I choose joy.
I choose to revel
in those who cherish and adore me
in those who would choose me despite the circumstances life offers them.
I choose serenity and peace.
And I choose to depend on the muscles God has helped make in me.
I am here if you awake.
And if you don’t.
For I know I am a rock.
I know that despite the worn and cracked places.
I stand firm and bright,
for I am a gem.
A treasure invaluable.
I choose the love of those who have come to see and depend on the light within me.
I bow to the light within you.
If you wake I pray you see it.
If you don’t I pray for you to have what I have.
For I have love.
I have light.
I have all the treasure I can want, and need.
And it comes from inside of me.
