There is so much that you can do

You can run, jump, and even tie your shoe

You wake up each morning, take a shower, and get dressed

Have you ever noticed that you are more fortunate than the rest

At night most of us sleep peacefully in or bed

A large percentage of kids in other countries don’t even have a place to rest their head

They work all day where they don’t get paid

But we go to school day after day

At school we talk and joke, while eating a healthy lunch

While if other kids saw our food they would just want a nibble or a much

While we watch Snapchat and YouTube

Children lay in hospitals and can’t even move

So just say thanks

Thanks means a lot more than you know

It means you appreciated it enough to let it show

Be grateful because you could lose it all

Think about those children the next time you go to the mall
