Taken for Granted


 Why is it that humans take the things they love most for granted,

Only to miss them when they've gone.

We pass them by, or abuse them until we're recanted*,

And when they leave, we act like its a phenomenon.

If you just take the  time,

And make sure to give thanks for what you have,

then the things you love most will be sublime**!

Do those simple steps and your pain will halve.


*verb:   formally reject or disavow a formerly held belief, usually under pressure.

**adjective:   inspiring awe.

The End
