Poetry

Feeling grateful

At the buzz of the alarm
I start each day
My thoughts all muddled
And hair in disarray

I jump out of bed
To rush to school
Sometimes I lack motivation
And then I feel like a fool

A fool, an idiot
An absolute disgrace
Undervaluing the privilege
That is hidden in the pace

At least I have somewhere to get to
At least I have something to achieve
At least I get to learn everyday
And have room to heave

I get to eat with preference
And not by lack of choice
I get to sleep on a cushy bed
And not by the traffic’s noise

And in that moment, I felt grateful
For all that life gave
And that made cheer up
From overthinking it did save
