Thankful

I am thankful for my two arms and legs,

for which i can run and play. 

I am thankful for my fingers and toes,

which help me in many ways.

 

My brain is there,

all the time,

alert and ready,

it digest my new knowledge,

eager for more.

 

My friends and family are always here,

always supporting me,

I am very thankful towards them,

for they made me who i am today.

 

I have lots of yummy food to eat,

to ensure that i am healthy and strong.

I have a house to live in,

where i can shower and sleep in.

 

I am lucky i am not,

witnessed or been in a car crash.

I am lucky that i have both parents and family with me,

and that they are not dead.

 

We are lucky for what we have,

there will always be someone less fortunate than ourselves,

and someone more fortunate than us.

Be grateful for that you are still living in a free world,

where you are loved.
