Taken For Granted Is...

With the getting of the best gift,
Which is life.
Many are unconscious,
Of its preciousness.
And,
Taken for granted is...
This life.
With a disrespecting,
Many generously give.

So many perceive it a quiz...
This life.
To reject the positive aspects of it.

Selfishly a living has been taught,
To assume, impress and consume.
Selfishly a living has been taught,
A feeding to feast is what life should be.
With a giving to others thought as charity.
As if the Universe does not provide all abundance.
And those who manipulate without thought to hesitate,
Witness with a taking away...
Their prized over-rated possessions.
Within seconds.

Selfishly a living has been taught,
To assume, impress and consume.
Selfishly a living has been taught,
A feeding to feast is what life should be.
To find themselves protesting,
A quality of life on the decrease.
As a feasting on 'things' diminishes.
With a declining value of human beings.

So many perceive it a quiz...
This life.
Many are unconscious,
Of its preciousness.
And,
Taken for granted is...
This life.
Until what is possessed disappears.
To leave nothing left but wept tears.
