Be Grateful For All You’ve Been Blessed

Be grateful

When i thought my day was bad
I looked at the guy next door
he wakes up each morning accepting
that he is unhappy, tired and poor

When he thinks life is bad
he looks at the woman from the other day
she sits in her house quietly grieving
because her young son passed away

when she thinks life is bad
she looks at the girl all on her own
she has no family after the accident
no one to hug her, or hear her moan

when she thinks life is bad
she is surprised to see
the people in third world countries
dying each second because of poverty

be grateful for all you’ve been blessed with
we need to stop and look around
because someone in a worse situation
never fails to be found

    Your poem is very timely. We’ve had a relatively minor accident this week… and while dealing with the fallout I’ve had to keep reminding myself that in the grand scheme of things, it was a minor setback and it could have been a lot worse…

    It’s on a completely different subject but it has pretty much the same page layout and design. Outstanding choice of colors!
