I think it's a fantastic idea for a poem. There's always someone who doesn't have it quite as good as you.

Just a thought!

I like your line 'you have to take you with you'. A sensitively written honest poem and a timely reminder to all of us. It's about perception, not reality. Some of the happiest people in the world are the poorest. Thanks for posting this Jim. love, Allie xxxxxxxx
