January 29, 1998

 

so long

for so long Ive listened

hearing the words

and not understanding

the words

 

and now

at last

I know!

 

when Phil sings about

“just another day in paradise”

I know

as far as this world is aware

I live daily in a paradise

beyond the poorests dream

 

I have never had a care

for my next meal to eat

or a place to sleep

even when Dad almost lost it all

I never lacked a thing

 

Thank God!

 

I have never known hunger

cold, or fear of storm

I lead a life of bliss

while unthought others look on

 

jealous

 

 

cold

 

 

and hungry

 


Each New Day A Miracle
