I’ve witnessed the ugliness in the world,
Walked amongst it throughout my time.
What then is its worth, have I missed something,?
I know of the good, the great and wonderful things.
At times that which is around me gets clouded,
Sadness and anger are seen on many a face.
Within all of this I am blessed,
Yes! blessed with ongoing life,
Blessed with friends and family,
Blessed with the love of a caring woman.
I’ve seen both sides of life and I am blessed.
