we can complain that summertime is too hot, it brings sleepless nights
or be thankful because those are the best days to fly kites
we can either hate the rain for it brings gloomy clouds
or be thankful it cools down the earth and washes dusty roads
we can complain we have too little it’s not a source of joy
or we can be thankful we have a reason to rejoice!
we can hate the changes around us, they stir our comfort zone
or we can be thankful that life is in motion and it is moving on
we can either grumble and break our world apart
or we can be joyful with a grateful heart.
