Be Thankful


In life we would like to have many things
The fancy cars
The diamond rings
We want want want
And then want more
We get so much stuff
That our house can’t fit any more

But in the end
Do you have a masterpiece?
Did you put together what you truly wanted
piece by piece?
You probably have a lot
But it still isn’t right
And yet you think of what you want
Each and every night

In life we want many things
Such materialistic people
We sometimes be
We want, want, want
But forget what we need
We forget about kindness
And good deeds
We don’t appreciate
That we already have what we need

So stop….
Think about the many things you have..
Be thankful for many things
Stop worrying about the minor things
For the true wonders in life can’t be bought with cash

Be thankful for the air you currently breathe
For today someone didn’t wake this morning you see
Be thankful for twinkles in your children’s eyes
Be thankful that today those eyes will not cry
Be thankful for being the shoes on your feet
They might not be the ones you wanted
But they are yours to keep
Be thankful for the clothes on your back
Because sometimes clothes are what others lack
Be thankful
Be thankful
Be thankful indeed
For you may be something others wish they could be
Be thankful for all the good in your life
Be thankful that today you’re alive

In life we would like to have many things
The fancy cars
The diamond rings
We want want want
And then want more
We get so much stuff
That our house can’t fit any more
But our houses are already filled…but we can’t see
Cause we can’t see what we truly needed
Be thankful that your house is filled with love
Be thankful that today is a day you are alive to see…
Be thankful
