The sixth month of 2012 is at the brink of closure.
Are we any different from when Jan 1 rolled in?
Christmas will be here in six months.
Have we made the world a better place for at least one individual?
Have we touched one life -be it animal or human.
Cheered one soul/ warmth one heart?
Do I find myself happier now or happier then?
Have I planted a firm foundation for the future or is my bridge built on quick sand?
Did I make more money this year/ laugh more/ reduce my wrinkles?
Or did I spend more/ cry more/ stress more?
Has my spirit been renewed/ refreshed/ rejuvenated
Or will it rot like burning flesh at the end of the year when apocalypse claim us?
Did I make more friends or enemies this year?
Did I create anything from my own two hands that brought me immense satisfaction?
Can I do anything within my power to turn the wheel upright again before the clock strikes 12 on Dec 31st?
For I am the owner of me. I say be happy. I turn the tides.
I may not be able to control you but I have the power within me to control me.
To rejoice. To be carefree. To Laugh. Love. Learn and ultimately, Live.
