I know I am alive again because nature did not reject me, said Oceany, who was set into oblivion and abandoned after being diagnosed with a deadly disease.
I owe my existence to nature, who gives me hope and joy to live day by day. As I can tell, there are so many things that am very grateful for:
the beautiful morning with bright sunrise,
___ the colorful sunset that lifts my spirit to peace every afternoon,
______the healthy breeze coming from the trees,
_________the soul-soothing echo coming from the cascade,
____________the fresh scent coming from the flowers,
_______________the melodious praises coming from the birds,
I am the bird singing praise. From the bottom of my heart, I would like to say THANK YOU, dear nature.
Thank you for saving me from a polluted and corrupted society.
