BEFORE YOU COMPLAIN
Before you say any unkind word
Think of some one who can't speak.
Before yo complain about the taste of your food
Think of someone who has nothing to eat.
Before you complain about your husband or wife
Think of some one who is crying out to God for a companion
Today before you complain about life and it hardship
Think of those who died so young unlike you.
Before you complain about your children
Whether ugly or handsome, stubborn or imbecile
Think of those who are desirous for children
But they are barren and hopeless.
Before complaining of the distance you drive
Think of someone who walked the same distance with his feet.
He never complain nor give up in his quest rather
His mind and spirit walked alongside with him
Encouraging his humble heart to wearing not.
Before you complain of your job
Think of the unemployed, the disable and those
Who wish they could have your kind of job but
Could not because of one problem or the other.
Before you condemn another, remember no one is perfect
Under the sun covered with evil and darkness.
YOur heart is your love and ambition your aspiration.
Destiny has it own way of governing individual
Stand tall and complain not because your life is virtue
Of honour and it has a price to pay.
