What mark will I make on the world

Lucky in life

Walking talking breathing

Even the daily 9 to 5 is fortunate 

I’m here to tell my tale

And for that I’m forever thankful.

Nothing lasts forever

Everything is temporary

Awoken from my sleep

And ready to grab life with both hands









With these things I am blessed

Never squandering a moment

It’s exciting

What’s going to happen next?

The thrill of not knowing constantly keeps me on my toes.

The realisation that we are not invincible Stops me in my tracks.


I think

I listen

I observe

I grow.


Life thrills me and I will never take it for granted

Because there is so much to experience

Life is a discovery

And it’s only just begun.



What is my legacy?

What mark will make on the world?
