The Simple Things


Today I woke up.
I could have died in my sleep.
Or, worse.

I’ve taken many breaths today.
A lot of people weren’t so fortunate.


There’s no justification for complaining.
I am blessed with so much
meanwhile so many people
across the globe survive on so little.


The ones with less
are the happiest folks.
They know appreciation.
They understand the meaning of life.
