I Appreciate All That I have©

Life is Bigger Than We Are

Sometimes we’re lucky enough to live a full life

We learn as we go and experience most things

Others are not as lucky

Some have no choice but to grow up fast

Not knowing what it is to be a child

They instantly become a caretaker

as soon as they can reach the sink and the stove

for some they have to go to work to help bring money into their home

Some are raised in famine with no roof over their head

No walls to separate their family from other families

No medicine to help the sick

No electricity

Some are just not fortunate to live as others do

I appreciate

the air we breath

the running water

for cooking our food,

for bathing,

for cleaning our clothes and our homes

The home we live in,

The school our children attend

The stores we shop in

The clothes we wear

The cars we drive

The doctors who care for us

The medicine that makes us well

I’m sad for those…

Who die young

Who never get to know love

Who never get to know happiness
