The things I love

I love smelling aromatic frankincense
An exquisite fragrance
That stirs up memories and emotions.

I love waking up feeling excited
Excited about what is planned for me
The excitement itself is exhilarating.

I love looking at beauty
Beauty that transcends love
And love that transcends infatuation.

I love knowing that the impossible is actually possible
Possible to achieve
So possible that it makes me want to do it.

I love seeing happiness blossom
Blossom in my surroundings
And beyond.

I love experiencing one of those wonderful memorable moments
That will stay in my mind

I love seeing smiles
On many faces
Including my own.

I love seeing foes become friends
Shaking hands and exchanging revolutionary ideas
Uniting for good and pure intentions.

I love seeing heart-warming compassion
Coming from all corners
For the dispossessed and injured.

I love working with my fellow brothers and sisters in humanity
Working and discussing about burning issues
That faces us and you.

I love knowing that I have a peaceful life
But the lack of peace in the world is heartbreaking
I deeply desire for a better future for a better world.
