A revelation, while being 29:
There is no need to be special.

An ordinary soul won't fade away
if it stops waiting
to be Called
to create something unique
to change the world.

Often the most remarkable thing I do in a day
is smile in the elevator at others who work in my building
also doing nothing extraordinary.

We don't appreciate only the brightest flower
but all those around them
simply for being flowers
for showing that the rain is working
the soil is good.

We are mostly human, divinely charged to live
from sun up to sun down
glorifying every space in God's green Earth
by leaving our exhaled breath
within it.
