Poetry on Odyssey: For Granted

The air that we breathe,

and the sun on our skin.

The ability to travel,

and the places we have been.

The food on the table,

and the money in the bank.

The television on the mantle,

and the bed where we lay awake.

The family that loves you,

and your friends that abound.

We take things for granted,

we all are guilty.

But be sure to take a moment,

and be thankful for your luck.

Not everyone has the things we do,

they can't fathom the good fortune that you have been blessed with.

Even if you don't see it for yourself,

give thanks for all that you have.
