Glad To Be Alive



Some brag about their journeys and adventures.

Some brag about the books they have bought and read.

Some brag about their experiences and successes in life.

Some brag about their courage and strength.

Some brag about their knowledge and wisdom.

Some brag about their wealth and power.

Some brag about their talents and abilities.

Some brag about their beauty and lifestyles

Some brag about their luck and fortune.

Some brag about their privileges and prerogatives

Some brag about their achievements and contributions.

Then the tsunamis, the earthquakes, the typhoons...come...

Then the screams and the cries of pain and despair.......

The sighs and the moans....

All is lost and nothing is gained.

And we are glad to be alive...

And we are content with what we have.....

.......Under the shadow of the wing of the Almighty God.

Yes, I am glad to be alive too. After the typhoon that devastated a lot of things and even claimed hundred of lives.
