Be Thankful

By : Aya Emam

Be thankful for having a home
Many people sleep on the street
Be thankful even if you are alone
You don't know in the future who you will meet

Be thankful even if you feel down
What doesn't kill you makes you stronger
Be thankful and don't you ever frown
Keep a smile on your face and destroy your anger

Be thankful for having parents who are sweet
Others have parents who are heartless
Be thankful for having them even if they beat
Orphans can tell you how without them they feel helpless 

Be thankful for having food
Many people suffer from hunger
Be thankful for having a good mood
Others are depressed and their pain is a strong thunder

Be thankful when you feel pain
It means that you are still alive
Be thankful that you are not insane
Tough life cause insanity to arrive

Be thankful even If you fail
Others don't even have the chance to try
Be thankful for having a brain
That handicaps don't have and die

Be thankful when you make a mistake
Without mistakes you will never learn
Life never stops it's like a lake
And every minute you waste cannot be returned

Be thankful for everything you have
Be thankful for everything you own
Because if you don't
You will regret it when it's all gone

Yes, there is always something to be thankful for.  So Allah, thank you for everything that you have given me and not given me. For everything that you gave or about to give, there's a purpose. Thank you so much for everything. <3
