Treasure Island

Charles Marshall


I am Thankful to have a Purpose in Life


I wonder why people assume and judge without asking
I hear voices in the air as people talk and whisper
I see different images of faces daily
I want to say smile God gave you another day of life
I am thankful to have a purpose in life

I pretend to act like the unhappy people I see daily
I feel that I was depriving myself a happy day
I touch the top of my forehead and said smile
I worry that people will not take the time to heal
I cry when I see people not changing their attitudes
I am thankful to have a purpose in life

I understand that adults are not commited to change in their life
I say never keep the same routine in life, change is good
I dream that all people will be able to smile and be happy
I try to create laugher and fun when I meet people
I hope that I make life more pleasent for those I meet
I am thankful to have a purpose in life
