Transform-A-Poem™ Number Nineteen

To live my life is my assignment.
I need to remember that.

I am not living any one else’s life.
It is my life I must live.

I cannot evade my life.
It is my life I must face.

I must face my life as it is.
I cannot pretend it is other
… than what it is.

I must live my life with open eyes.
To see only part of it
… is not living.

I must live my life with hope.
To despair is to begin dying.

I must live my life with joy.
Otherwise I will not have hope.

I must live the life that unfolds before me.
I must live it with passion
… and that will bring me joy.

I must live a joyful life
… and celebrate the life I live.

Living my life is a celebration.
I must live my life.
