I’ve always liked the song “Wonder” by Natalie Merchant, but I never saw the music video or paid attention to the words until now. Though some things are unexplainable when it comes to our genetic makeup, we all have gifts because of (and sometimes in spite of) it. Never judge a book by it’s cover or even just it’s first few pages. Read the whole thing to fully understand it and appreciate it.

Lyrics:

Doctors have come
from distant cities
just to see me
stand over my bed
disbelieving what they’re seeing

they say I must be one of the wonders
of god’s own creation
and as far as they see they can offer
no explanation

newspapers ask
intimate questions
want confessions
they reach into my head
to steal the glory
of my story

they say I must be one of the wonders
of god’s own creation
and as far as they see they can offer
no explanation

I believe
fate smiled and destiny
laughed as she came to my cradle
“know this child will be able”
laughed as my body she lifted
“know this child will be gifted
with love, with patience
and with faith
she’ll make her way”

people see me
I’m a challenge
to your balance
I’m over your heads
how I confound you
and astound you
to know I must be one of the wonders
of god’s own creation
and as far as you see you can offer me
no explanation

I believe
fate smiled and destiny
laughed as she came to my cradle
“know this child will be able”
laughed as she came to my mother
“know this child will not suffer”
laughed as my body she lifted
“know this child will be gifted
with love, with patience
and with faith
she’ll make her way”

I don't believe humans truly have a purpose. Our goal is to survive until we expire. Period. Joy is pleasurable and worrying is not. Balance in life is crucial; but if the scales must tip, may they tip on the side of joy. I’m just another human trying to survive. I blog because I can and because I enjoy it, not because it serves any purpose.
