To be thankful for what you have is to be thankful for only half of what you have been given
Life may be better with money in your pocket, and a car to be driven
But would life be life without possibility?
Without the ability to dream into infinity?
It may not be obvious to those who only see what is ahead
But that is why our neck can spin
And why things can be heard without ever having been said
Why music can be more than sounds
And why it feels like we’re flying, while our feet are still flat on the ground
Did you ever stop and think about what life could actually be?
And not what it is?
Was that dream meant for you, or was it really hers, or was it his?
People live their life in poverty
Not having the essentials, and not knowing how to read
But with how our thoughts and minds can exceed the barrier of reality
Don’t we really always have everything that we need?
We should be grateful for what we can reach out and touch
But also for what some of us take for granted so much
It’s the power to think up a joke that’s really funny
Or to shop for whatever you want without any money
And the ability to write late into the night
Or fall in love with a picture, all alone with no one in sight
We should be thankful for the power to believe
Without it, life would not be life
But with it, we’ll always have everything that we’ll really ever need
