As I walk the world of the living
I stumble on my thoughts,
They are full of prejudices, hate, anger and blame
My will is strong but my legs are weak.
As I hold on education, family,faith
hope and love
I am able to stand for a short precious time
to see clearly what is waiting for me.
Then I gain strengths.
Today, I made a step forward.
As I walk the world of the living,
before I step into eternity
I remember those that are not here
Those I left on the side of the trail,
in river beds,
in abandoned houses in the jungle
half dead and hopeless
I am grateful for the wind on my face
The warmth of the Sun
The chill of the rain on my skin
I will walk and walk until there is not life left in these legs.
