Her Own Life.... - Poem by RIC BASTASA

the middle aged woman
speaks about all the bad luck in her life
she is poor, her heart is broken
her husband is sick
her children all dumb
she has no house to live
she has no relatives to
help her

then she asks me
on what part of her life will she be grateful to God?
she does not know the word
about thanks

then the older woman asks her
to give back at 3 p.m. today the life that the Lord has given her

she realizes what she has which she has not given importance
she shakes her head, kneels on the ground and
said thanks to God....
