I Am Thankful

I am thankful i can walk;
There are those who have never taken their first step.

I am thankful i can see;
There are those whose world is always dark.

I am thankful i can hear music play;
There are those whose entire lives have been spent in silence.

I am thankful my heart can be broken;
There are those who are so hardened they cannot be touched.

I am thankful i can move about freely;
There are those who live in constant fear.

I am thankful i have been loved;
There are those who nobody cares about.

I am thankful i can work;
There are those who have to depend on others for even their most basic needs.

I am thankful for the opportunity to be educated;
There are about 75% of the world’s population that can neither read nor write.

I am thankful for my friends;
There are those who have never known friendship.

I am thankful i can gain weight;
There are those without an Adipose tissue.

I am thankful for my parents;
There are those who havent beeen blessed like that.

I am thankful i am ME;
There are carbon copies of celebrities all around.

I am thankful for life;
There are those who never had the opportunity.
