Oh what privilege alive in a body

To feel what is joyful tearful hardy

To have these wonderful tools and sweet gifts

To seamlessly navigate shifts upon shifts


You always have company you’re never alone

You’re very familiar you know who’s home

A comfort that’s heartening warming sincere

One that will be there year after year


No matter what fate serves or stupidity brings

The vehicle we have serves as our wings

We have processors Intel longs for

We have robotics with intelligence galore


We have complexity and the warmth of emotion

We have a presence and sense of devotion

We have independence dependence interdependence too

Let’s not forget reinvention it’s part of the stew


Please honor your vehicle let it be your friend

It will serve your needs right up to the end

Cherish with gratitude please treat it well

It’s your magic carpet it will never tell


Do you ever take time to acknowledge and appreciate the extraordinary tool and vehicle your physical body is?

If you were to take the time right now what would you be thankful for?

In what ways have you neglected this birthright?

What do you need to change about how you treat and care for this aspect of yourself?
