Taking things for Granted
Taking Things For Granted, most of the time it is the little things we take for granted or the thing we just don't think about.
The river is rushing in front of me, the water splashes as it goes down stream, as I look down river I can see a island with a bridge connecting to it, as I look up river I can see a dam with walls in front of it, not knowing how much or the force that stand behind it. I take for granted a dam will always hold. I also take for granted the bridge below that it will never fall, but eventually things give way when you least expect it . For where I stand I feel safe not knowing the life I have lived may be hanging by a thread. As I take for granted the things that are before me, they can fall apart without notice as for the bridge it can be a road to safety, but the bridge can always give beneath you when you least expect it and you are standing in the middle of it and you were always thinking this bridge is safe and thinking this, you have taken it for granted always trusting it never looking at the structure of it underneath of it never looking what it has been made of. For the dam, you have no clue how much water is behind it or how much water it can actually Holder if the dam is stable and has it let out enough water and you have never wondered if that dam will ever collapse, you take it for granted you have trust in the dam. It never hits you the weather may go bad and the dam may collapse and the bridge may fall and you standing on the banks watching this happen have taken for granted things that you thought could make you safe but all in the instance have change your life on what you can trust and appreciate and the things that make you safe but you have taken those things for granted
