Reasons to live
By Stacy Varner

I need to live because life, no matter how difficult, no matter how painful,
is a gift, a blessing and an obligation.

I need to live because in the stillness of the ebony nights of this oft tortured soul I find the need to call upon courage to use my God-given abilities and talents to do all that I can to make a difference in this world by being, sharing, breathing and finding compassion in this far too often cruel and selfish world.

I need to live because above all gifts that can be gifted to one person I have the gift of love in abundance; to give it and receive it. Love can move mountains and can, in time, dress and soothe the naked crying soul.

I need to live because I am a thread that is woven into the fabric of so many lives. One that if yanked from existence would leave a less adequate quilt to warm the hearts of my loved ones and touch the souls of others. We all are this thread.

I need to live because I have a responsibility to my creator and to my soul to fulfill my destiny.

I need to live because I am alive and everything that happens in this life enriches my eternity.

I need to live because until my last breath I will write, paint or speak of "chosen" death, depression, the unique ensuing grief and the arcane cultural mores that contribute to and follow them will be brought to the forefront and discussed in the hope that one day our societies will refrain from shying away from these subjects for sake of political correctness, religious deference or sheer cowardice.

I need to live because I must.

I need to live because I am.


Wishing You Peace Along the Journey,
