Many times, in the day to day, we came across
surprising and unpredictable events,
that leave us breathless and speechless.
Some sad, unwanted and hurtful ones,
which we cannot understand its origin or reason,
carried out by family, friends, even by ourselves.
We need to remember those that brought us
happiness, joy and well-being,
unexpected that also have been,
which, without better judgment, we counted
as natural and fully deserved.
Indeed, in the harvest we do every day,
we are faced with abundance, sometimes scarcity,
healthy fruits alongside some sick ones.
We must remember it was not just us
who have planted what we are now reaping.
It had been sowed by parents and grandparents,
also by everyone who preceded us.
Really, it is the heritage we have to honor,
interdependent as we are, in our common,
beloved, sometimes so suffering human race.
