“Pour Me a Drink”

“Pour me a drink as I celebrate my life.

I am alive. I am present. I am here.

My presence is the light of the world.

I look in the mirror and I’m in love with 

who I see. I see a child of God with a

God that’s in love with me. I’ve been 

distraught and depressed, but I overcame.

I continued to get back up after being 

knocked down and now my feet remain 

planted and I stand upright, refusing 

to be knocked down ever again. 

Pour me a drink as I commemorate my life. 

For a time well spent and a job well done. 

I did what I had to do and I did it with flair

and style. I didn’t let anyone talk down on 

or ridicule me. I knew who I was and I knew

where I was going. Now that I’m here, 

I am happy. 

So pour me a drink and I’ll raise my glass. 

“Here’s to me, for finding my purpose and 

moving pass the past. Cheers.””
