Being grateful for the life we have

Have you ever felt like your world is crashing down
like your a tornado who seems to be wrecking everything around
even though you thought you were doing what was right
you kept getting nightmares every night

you tried to say sorry again and again
but that word never seem to eases your pain
so you think its best to just disappear
but without realising your family tells you they are always here

when you make mistakes that you didn't mean to do
if you own up to them things will be OK and that's true
there's always a reason for everything
and when we do things without thinking

when someone steels a sandwich in a hurry
that person could be desperate and hungry
because they could be living on the street
and they knew they might die if they didn't eat
so when your life is getting bad
think about another person who life is even worse and they are happy not sad

poet Sir Walter Raleigh

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust
Our youth, our joys, our all we have,
And pays us but with earth and dust;
