When you look into the mirror I hope you will agreeThat the miracle in front of you is designed perfectly10 trillion cells that function even when you stop to restNo time for them to chill out, go on strike or say they’re stressed This treasure trove of mysteries is a complex work of artAn engineering marvel starting from your beating heartPumping life-sustaining blood from the engine roomNever stopping for a break – right from womb to tomb What makes you more amazing is your fascinating brainIt helps you think and dream and lets your human psyche reignYour mind located in your brain is what makes you uniqueA network of synapses with an aura of mystique The nutrients your body needs is got from food you eatChurned into a gooey mush which is an awesome featPacked inside your abdomen your intestines work hardAbsorbing raw material while the rest it will discard Connecting you from head to toe – your pillars of supportYour bones and muscles help you move, sit upright or play sportThey protect your vital organs and carry all your weightWith a Spinal cord and Cranium since you’re a Vertebrate 20,000 times a day you breathe in and breathe outThat you can’t survive without your lungs you shouldn’t have a doubtThe Oxygen you inhale is absorbed by every cellExhaling Carbon Dioxide to keep you fit and well Your senses help you see and smell, touch and hear and tasteTransmitting signals to your brain, your neurons act in hasteShuttling info back and forth making you awareThrough mind-boggling connections they see to your welfare Your liver has a dozen jobs and toils behind the scenesFiltering toxins from your blood – a small job by no meansA wrecker’s yard - it smashes stuff your body does not needThat your liver’s a Life Saver, I’m sure you will concede As for your bean shaped kidneys which work hard night and dayThey get rid of your waste matter – a task you can’t downplayChecking Glucose levels – is your pancreas main roleWith the help of Insulin it works hard to control From head to toe each part works hard to keep you strong and fitSlaving non-stop all your life – until your sad exitSo please accept apologies – all body parts I’ve missedEach one of you is precious and I’ve got you in my list Your gall bladder & lymph nodes, patella and your spleenYour Gluteus Maximus – not a muscle I’ll demeanYour Superior Vena Cava and at–times- forgotten gutYour incisors, aorta and your honourable butt A union of an egg and sperm, you’re half Dad & half MumOnce a tiny foetus – You were smaller than Tom ThumbWith 90, 000 pairs of genes in each of every cellYou’re absolutely flawless – hope you know that you excel From 7 billion human beings there’s no one quite like youHow God designed this Masterpiece I do not have a clueWe admire works of art and often hold our breath in aweBut seldom praise the miracle – the one your mirror saw.

Well written Anita a reminder that we have an awesome God and we are wonders of His beautiful creation
Well written..keep it up.
Good analysis.Well written.
Great article Anita
I have no words to express on your mind blowing article. Our human body is nothing short of a miracle. It is so well made that you cannot imagine it. Anita Britto, I hope you write more articles like this which will soothe our whole body both innerly as well as outwardly. God bless.
Very well written madam, we all ways feel others life is better than us forgetting we ourselves is a miracle as you said. life is a gift given by god but we think always think negative, think others are happy.
What a wonderful way to remind us of the greatest Miracle of life. It's really a wonder that our reflection is same always (Of course aging as the years roll by). Even a small part or the smallest part of our body is indeed a miracle. For the believer everything about life in and around Her/Him is a miracle. Even a stone can be brought back to life by a Geologist !For a Non Believer even if someone rises from the dead it's not enough . THANKS again Anita and keep going !!
Awesome Anita!! We truly are an awesome work of God.
Very well written Anita. It makes appreciate and be grateful for each and every part of our beautiful body.Thank you.
Very well written. Most of us take our body and the complex immune system for granted. Anita, Your language is simple and easily understood.Thank you.
And we still look for Miracles round us!Think this one is for the Atheists.We stand still for a minute..look at ourself and look around ..then and only then do we have a chance of having a glimpse at the 'Miracle'.Madam Anita as usual has portrayedthe 'Miracle' in words as only she can.
Reminds me of an old Hindi song: 'Jiski rachna itni sundar, Woh kitna sundar hoga..'
