I believe in existence.
Each person is put on this earth for a reason.
Everyone has the ability to think what he or she wants
And believe in whom they want.
I have been given an allotted time period
To experience everything imaginable.
Who said that life is too short?
Life is the longest and the only thing you will ever endure.
But this one life is full of surprises
Things that you might think are coincidences, are actually really meant to happen.
Each person you meet, you will once meet again.
You may have an impact on someone’s life, without even knowing.
I find it truly amazing that God has put me on this earth
Living in the town I’m supposed to be in
Meeting the people I was meant to meet
Choosing a career path and aspiring myself onto my own future
How can this existence be less than a miracle?
I often wonder about how small we truly are.
Thinking of an atom, of a single cell
Producing a child that will grow
And this person on such a huge earth
This world, with all it’s billions of people
All the animals imaginable,
Every mountainside to each beachfront.
This earth is just as small as us
Because the earth lies in a solar system
And the solar system in a galaxy
And this is one galaxy compared to billions out there.
Why did God choose us to be on this earth?
And are there more earths out there in other galaxies,
Where people are wondering the same thing?
I ask: Why do I get this opportunity to live this wonderful life?
Answer: I have a reason for being here
And the best part of my journey is….I can’t tell you until I clock out.
