The Gift Of Life

Poem By Qiniso Mogale

Waking up every morning
That is a gift
The air we breathe
That is a gift
That we are able to walk
That is a gift
That we are able to see and hear
That is a gift
The gift of life.

It is not a given that we wake
up every morning
Many go to sleep and never wake up
It is not a given that we breathe
Some are using oxygen machines
It is not a given that we walk on two feet
Some are on wheel chairs
All these are gifts
All these are by God's grace.

Let all treasure the gift of life
Let none take it for granted
We know not what tomorrow holds
We know not what the future holds
Let's honour those we love
Let's show them that love
They may not wake up tomorrow
We may not wake up tomorrow
The gift of life is taken away at anytime
The gift of life is withdrawn at anytime.

Comments about The Gift Of Life

Fine and lofty versa, written with clarity of thought and mind. A beautiful creation with spiritual insight. Thanks for sharing Qiniso and do remain enriched.
Qiniso, and God granted you the gift of writing, so that you can share this with us. Excellent write! Thank you for sharing.
Life is a gift from God yet uncertain what tomorrow holds so we need to be always fair fair to life and loving ones.A good message.
Life is the most precious gift one can dream of. Life should be lived sharing love and peace and giving smile to all. We should take advantage of the present as the next moment is uncertain. Very nice. Enjoyed.Deserves 10+++

An old man sitting under a tree
Sees much further than a boy
standing on top of a tree
An old man sittting at the bottom of a mountain

There Is Strength In Unity

Sometimes, there is strength in numbers
Sometimes, the numbers are given strength
Tiny grains of sand make up the entire beach
A small handful of grains is easily moved

Rivers Never Go Reverse

Rivers never go reverse
If all could emulate rivers
If all could live like rivers
Forget the past hurts

Forgive Unsaid Apologies

Forgive silent apologies
Forgive unheard apologies
Forgive invisible apologies
Forgive unuttered apologies

As This World Comes To An End

As world super powers threaten war
As world super powers prepare for war
As they assemble their weapons of mass destruction
As they test the might of their weapons
