Count your blessings

By Rafiq Raji

An ungrateful soul worries about an itch in his eye

Forgets to be grateful for his sight

An ungrateful soul worries about his slowing stride

Forgets to be grateful for the joy of walking

An ungrateful soul worries about the rumblings in his stomach

Forgets to be grateful for his appetite

An ungrateful soul worries about the fruit of his loins

Forgets to be grateful for the joy of birth

An ungrateful soul complains about the snoring by his side

Forgets to be grateful for the joy of love

An ungrateful soul worries about forgetfulness

Forgets to be grateful for burdens spared

An ungrateful soul worries overmuch

Forgets to be grateful for blessings abundant.
