I Am Nature's Greatest Miracle!

I am not on this earth by chance,
I am here on a purpose,
And that purpose is to grow into a mountain!
And not to shrink into a grain of sand......
Within me burns a flame,
That has been passed from generations uncounted,
And its heat is a constant irritation to my spirit,
To do better, and I WILL.

I just wrote this from memory, but I see now that the original scroll of Og Mandino contained more than that, but this is what my high school English teacher taught us as a poem that I will never forget. This is just so powerful, and has been on the back of my mind since then, that every time I automatically recite it silently, I will always hold my head up, for I indeed, am nature's greatest miracle. And so are you... Be well.
