Life is an opportunity, benefit from it.
Life is beauty, admire it.
Life is a dream, realize it.
Life is a challenge, meet it.
Life is a duty, complete it.
Life is a game, play it.
Life is a promise, fulfill it.
Life is sorrow, overcome it.
Life is a song, sing it.
Life is a struggle, accept it.
Life is a tragedy, confront it.
Life is an adventure, dare it.
Life is luck, make it.
Life is too precious, do not destroy it.
Life is life, fight for it.
By: Mother Teresa
~Mother Teresa of Calcutta
(August 26, 1910 – September 5, 1997)
Born Agnes Gonxha Bojaxhiu, she was an Albanian Roman Catholic nun with Indian citizenship.
In 1950, Mother Teresa founded the Missionaries of Charity in Kolkata (Calcutta) in India. For over forty five years she ministered to the poor, sick, orphaned, and dying, while guiding the Missionaries of Charity's expansion, first throughout India and then in other countries.
*I really enjoy anything that Mother Teresa writes, it is Pure Simplicity. Especially for anyone like myself that has a hard time understanding and following the use of Large words :)
I hope you find God and inspiration in this poem.
