The Magic

By Anoucheka Gangabissoon

Life is itself a magical show,
Can’t you see it
In the way the winds blow by themselves
Or in the way the skies know
When to thrust upon us
Torrents of water
To fill our dams and our reservoirs
To allow us to continue our blinded lives?


Life is magic
And if you allow it to work itself upon you
You will come to love it
As you shall see its beauty
In the hidden unicorns that spy on you
Or in the purple clouds that peek at you,
Being naught but the homes of the angels,
Who are always watching upon you
Ready to protect you from any harm
That may fall upon you!


Life is made of magic
Do take the time to turn your gaze
Off the thorns that you believe
Prick your soul
And learn to appreciate
Of its fragrance
And you shall see
That you are a part of this
Magical show
And that you are to be celebrated
At any cost!
