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

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
