Don't Take Life For Granted


The things half of us need is the things half of us take for granted
The ones who have to work for it and the ones who get it handed
Some of us live in a one floor and some of us live in a mansion
Some of us can pay for it with one check and some need a advancement
But who really thinks of the kids without a plate of food or a roof over their head
The ones without clean water and can hardly sleep at night because they don't have a bed
If one of them was in our shoes for a single day
They'd feel like they had the world and not one word to say.
My point is your life could always be worse so appreciate what you have
Because theirs somebody out there that doesn't have half of what you have, and they go to sleep happy from just the grasp of a laugh.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
