Your particular situation is not that bad

Your particular situation is not that bad

Written By Dean Masciarelli

Your particular situation is not that bad

At least you have food in your belly; and 
a bed 
to sleep in; that has a roof over your head;

Instead of sleeping on a cold concrete slab

That’s why you must always be grateful
and thankful for all the things that you 
do have; instead of worrying 
about the things that you may not have

Because there are people out there in the 
world; who are less fortunate then you are;
and there stories can be extremely sad

Your particular situation is not that bad

At least you have food in your belly; and 
a bed 
to sleep in; that has a roof over your head
