Morning Light Brings Gratitude

Struggle has some strange stories
Poverty can happen to anyone…

Once upon a moment there were
3 souls living in a world of abundance
then there was 1…

I remember being homeless but had a car
receiving money at Christmas from the Town
and the cop who delivered it telling me
my plates were expired…

Lying and stealing to get an apartment
buying lobsters with food stamps
but couldn’t buy toilet paper…

Finding a friend who really cared
and having another miles away
who wouldn’t let me die…

Now when I open these eyes
when I see the Morning Light
even before my feet hit the floor
I Am filled with Gratitude
