Birthright

leave a comment »

Nothing is our birthright, not the moon, the stars, nor this place we call Earth. Everything we have and experience is given, given freely. From our animal companions, to the people we share this life with, down to the aches, pains and joy, everything is given. Nothing is our right and nothing should ever be expected. All in a flash it could be gone, taken away just as fast or faster than it was given. For some we cling on to things, making sure we keep a tally of what is ours. Take nothing with you but what you learned from this life. Take not the material possessions. Take not the pride, nor the hate nor the anger. Take not the things that drown you in your own suffering. Take not what is yours, but bring what is for others to share.
