"We have this gift,
this gift of life,
but we don't have it for a long while.
We have a finite measure of breathes,
and finite beats of the heart we are all given.
What will we do with our measure?
Will we choose anger, malice and hatred to be our first response?
Or will we choose
kindness and respect to be our treasure?
Will our lips speak with honey
words that attract like nectar the honey bee
or will we speak with gossip and judgement
our words holding another hostage, a prisoner with no key?
Ask yourself what will I do with this gift,
this temporary breath,
these few heartbeats given
and know that today you can choose,
in this moment,
to live in hell or heaven." Linda Burandt
