Today I woke up feeling grateful
And for what?
I don't have the fanciest clothes, nor the richest house
So what's the point?
I see two types of people on the streets
There are people who are struggling
Struggling for money, food, and water
Struggling to supply for their own children
Struggling for their own life
But then I see the "privileged"
They have everything
Extra money, luxurious cars, and fancy clothes
Some even question what to do with all of their money
But yet when they come across some of these unfortunate people
They decide to turn the other cheek
Act as if they're superior to you and not equal
Act as if these people have done them wrong
Its a shame, really
There is no value in owning all of these riches if you're not helping those in need
You see, being homeless doesn't always mean you have no shelter
It could also mean that you feel like no one is looking after you
Like no one wants to lend you a helping hand
Like you have no friends or family to love
Like no one genuinely cares
But you see, that's where you're wrong
There is always someone who cares
Whether it's a random civilian
Or the big guy in the sky
So why did I wake up being grateful today?
I am grateful for my Lord, my friends, my family, my home
So be grateful, because not everyone owns these things
And spread gratitude and equality in the hearts of others today.
