Be grateful!

I live my life to the fullest, /
Because, i don't know what will happen tomorrow. /
I believe that life can change in a second. /
Hence, everything i do is from the best of my ability. /
I thank god for blessing me with this life. /
Hence, i pray each and everyday. /

When you smile somebody cry. /
When you smile somebody is mad. /
We all wanna be happy! ! !
When you shout somebody is deaf. /
When you walk somebody is disabled. /
When you hot somebody is cold. /

I see because i still can. /
You need to see because you still can see. /
I walk because i can. /
You need to walk because you still can walk. /
I listen because i can. /
You need to listen because you still can listen. /
I read because i can. /
You need to read because you still can read. /
I write because i can. /
You need to write because you still can write. /
I speak because i can. /
You need to speak because you still can speak. /

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
