Poetry on Odyssey: For Granted

A poem about all the things that people take for granted.

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.

Breakups are hard. There's nothing comparable to the pain of losing someone you thought would be in your life forever. Someone who said all the right things at the right times. Someone who would give you the reassurance you needed, whenever you needed it. And then one day, it just... stops. Something changes. Something makes you feel like you're suddenly not good enough for him, or anyone for that matter.
