When things don't turn out as you thought,
When gifts received aren't those you sought,
When expectations let you down,
When your face projects a dismal frown...
When you are perched on your pity-pot,
Or when you speak, you just whine alot,
When your own problems exceed the rest,
And life looks like one huge failed test...
When a small dark cloud surrounds your head,
When hope has faded and you're filled with dread,
When gloom and doom spill from your cup,
When you feel so low that you can't look up...
Grab a pen and make a list.
Look around for the blessings missed.
Reach beyond self-centered pain...
A grateful heart keeps the spirit sane...
