Each Breath Is a Gift

I've reached a point,
where I hear all the voices in my mind - 
and I can discern where they are coming from.
This isn't an easy task,
and I'm not on 24/7 -
however, I've tapped into an ability
to understand, observe, then react.
I share this because,
this wasn't always my story.
For years I felt condemned to misfortune,
bad luck, the short end of the stick…
but I accept all of it, because it was my journey.
What has changed is my perspective.
Had I not experienced bad,
I wouldn't know what good is.
Everyday is different,
but gratitude and appreciation deepens
as I understand...
each breath is a gift.
