Treasure Island

Least You Forget

Aren't you glad you made a list, and checked it twice?
Isn't it better to be not naughty, but nice?
Least we forget how to in 2014 to live, hope, and dream.

You need to do more than just stay alive,
if you want your hopes and dreams to survive!

Just meeting the status quo does not
necessarily make your world:
go round the merry go round
of the game of life.

Least you forget to count your blessings,
naming them one by one, and being
thankful for what the Lord, your God has done!

Least you forget that life is more than just
clothing to wear and food to eat.
You live in an unfair world filled
withh hungry men and women,
and boys and girls.

Least you forget to be thankful for
shelter from the storms of life.
How many men and their wives
do not even have a roof over their heads?

How many are there homeless children living in
the world? Least you forget to even care!

You have clothes to wear and food to eat,
while many children have no shoes on
their bare feet.

Least you forget in the midst of your bounty,
that most of the world lives in complete poverty!
Love in Christ Jesus!

Poet's Notes about The Poem

In the midst of telling others to be thankful, God reminded me of people who are living in third world countries, who are needy. But even in the United States, we have whole families and communities in need.

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
