This was written a while back about myself


I open my eyes,
what do I see?
I see wonderful people,
and a life full of glee.

I have a large family,
not one, two or three.
Six sisters and three brothers,
I am blessed can’t you see.

I have a wonderful husband,
and three healthy kids.
A life with all this,
a fortune some would give.

I have good friends.
In real life and online.
Some are like family,
and we talk all the time.

I have food on the table,
a roof over my head.
I have shoes on my feet,
and if sick I get meds.

Some people don’t have this,
how lucky am I.
There people fighting cancer,
and some of them will die.

Yes I have illness!
Yes I have pain,
but then who doesn’t
so from sadness I refrain.

I love to laugh,
and crack a joke.
I don’t need a drink,
or the funny smoke.

Take a look around you,
tell me what do you see?
Do you see sadness,
or is your life full of glee.

Look at your blessings,
we all do have some.
Be it a wonderful daughter,
mother, father or son.

Yes I have illness,
some like to remind me.
Just because I have an illness,
it doesn’t defines me.
