Have To/Get To

Have To/Get To

Many people dread the things
They should be thankful for
Let’s take a look at all the blessings
That feel like a chore

If you’re young, you do not have
To go to school today
You get to go to school so please
Some gratitude display

If you’re grown up, your job’s not
A place you have to go
You get to go to work so some
Appreciation show

If something ails, you do not have
To go to your doc’s place
You get to see a doctor so
Please show a little grace

If there’s a tooth that hurts, you don’t
Have to go see a dentist
You get to see one so please add it
To your “grateful” list

If there’s a form to fill out, you
Don’t have to fill in blanks
You get to do the paperwork
So show a little thanks

If it’s Sunday morning, you
Don’t have to go to church
You get to go so on your way
You should try not to lurch

If there is an event planned
You don’t have to attend
You get to go so show a little
Respect for your friend

You don’t have to get out of bed
You get to wake and rise
You do not have to work out, no
You get to exercise

If everyone stopped having to
Do all the things they do
And realized how lucky that
They are that they get to

Many more people would have
A lot more gratitude
And we would get to see less folks
Be in a dreary mood

    The continuation of a daily routine can as well be counted as a blessing. For those who want to be happy and feel lucky, they would even count a blink of an eye a bliss, for a lot of people are incapable of that.
    That was lovely ! It is always pleasant to read positive thoughts.
    Take a look at my blog 🙂
