Human Rights
Teresa Patterson

Do not forfeit your right to live
With peaceful joy, with tears and laughter,
With purpose and view of the ever after,
Learn how to love and how to give.
Do not forfeit your right to live…

Do not pay homage to rage, to sorrow,
Save a few memories for tomorrow,
In every moment play your part!
For glory do not forsake your heart…
Embrace the NOW with delight!
To love, do not forfeit your right…

Do not forfeit your happiness…
Don’t live your life in token’s shadow
While there is sunshine in the meadows,
Even if you are penniless…
For life itself is pure happiness.

Do not forfeit your right to pray
If obstacles happen on the way,
There is no sin in honest toil…
Sow all your seeds in fertile soil,
Then share your bounty with thy neighbor.
Do not forfeit the joys of labor.

Do not forfeit your right to live.
Cherish your days, then close the chapter,
Before embracing the ever after.
Do not just forget, but forgive.
Thus you can earn your right to live…
