So Much to be Thankful For

By
Look at you sitting there on your couch staring at your flat screen TV
Dressed from head to toe with clothes priced high enough to clothe the poor
You live in style yet so much more you desire not even thinking about me (unfortunate ones)
You see, while you sit there you don’t think that you have so much to be thankful for.

You eat till you’re full, you even throw away food
This can be given to charity to feed the poor
But still you’re in a tempered mood
You see, while you sit there you don’t think that you have so much to be thankful for.

You live in a beautiful house with four walls and a roof to cover your head
You raise buildings to the sky where the money can be used to shelter the poor
You’re living in peace and comfort but still you are not satisfied while sleeping in bed
You see, while you sit there you don’t think that you have so much to be thankful for.

You enjoy holidays and vacations with loving family and friends
While the ones living through deaths are living like the poor
Yet complaining you are bored not thinking when lives will end
You see, while you sit there you don’t think that you have so much to be thankful for.

You have a body with 5 working senses and everything intact
Which can be used to help the less fortunate who are looked at as the poor
Just to fit in with the crowd you want to change your looks and act
You see, while you sit there you don’t think that you have so much to be thankful for.

You were born with everything you need to help you be the best in this life and after
Lucky it was you who was given a chance and whose soul didn’t soar
While you’re here, help those who need it the most for them to join in your laughter
You see, while you sit there you don’t think that you have so much to be thankful for.
