Count Your Blessings

Contributed by waynster on Tuesday, 28th June 2016 @ 05:03:57 PM in AEST
Topic: oops

Today I am happy
a few days ago I was not
I have come to a realization
to everything I have got

Having been blessed
but sometimes itís just hard to tell
Those are the days weíre not happy
when our worlds are broken for a spell

Life feels so lonely
when we have such a day
Then we feel so much anger
and treat everyone in a very bad way

Sometimes we just need to stop
and take a good look around
We need to count our blessings we have
in this world in which we are bound

Our world could be crashing around us
but we should not despair
Thereís always a light at the end of the tunnel
family and friends are waiting for us there

So today I am very happy
many blessings I do have in this life
The good Lord blessed me
with three wonderful children and a beautiful wife

So count your blessings
and find happiness inside each of you
Your world will be a much better place
and for everyone else too

Wise words, Wayne.

While every care is taken to ensure the general sites content is family safe, our moderators cannot be in all places; all the time. Please report poetry and or comments that are in breach of our site rules HERE (Please include poem title or url). Parents also please ensure that you supervise your children well when they are on the internet; regardless of what a site says about being, or being considered, child-safe.

Poetry is much like a great photo, a single "moment in time" capturing many feelings and emotions. Yet, they are very alive; creating stirrings within the readers who form visual "pictures" of the expressed emotions within the Poem. ©
