Count your blessings #WednesdayVerses
On a grumpy Monday morning,
While I try to reach the terror called the office,
I’m forced to take the road less taken without a warning.
I keep worrying about the zillion things on my mind,
Wondering where life is taking me,
Because the time for myself, I cannot find.
As I look out, I find the most beautiful smiles,
On the faces of people,
Who have definitely been through life’s trials.
Though with needs barely met,
Joy abounds plenty,
The kind that money cannot get!
What brings them so much joy, I wonder,
Is it in those little things that I often ignore,
Has it been my life’s blunder?
Often thinking about things are not,
The ones I do not have,
I’ve failed to count all the blessings I’ve got.
As I move closer to where I’m bound,
I realize I’ve often overlooked the journey,
Ignoring the little joys around.
If there’s one thing that we often forget,
It is to count your blessings,
And not live with regrets.
