Hard Times

Have you ever felt like the whole world was on your shoulders?
Like everyone was out to get you and trying to run you over?

No matter what you do, it always turns out wrong.
Everything around you keeps falling as you try desperately to hold on.

Everybody seems to be going up, while you keep heading down.
Everyone has something to smile about, while you wear a frown.

They all seem to be doing well and climbing up to the top.
They all get to drink from the cup of success, but you never get a drop.

Nothing ever seems to go your way and you don't even know the meaning of the word Luck?
No matter how much you scrape and save, something always comes along and take your last buck.

Well.. just remember the man who complained about not being able to buy a new pair of shoes, until he met a man with no feet.
The girl who complained about having to wear glasses, until she
bumped into a blind man on the street.

The boy who complained of having to eat his vegetables, when there are kids starving in the world with nothing to eat.
The woman who complained about her baby crying all night, while some are born never to speak.

Your life may not be as good as others, but remember that there is always someone worst off than you.
So instead of complaining of what you don't have, take the time to thank the Lord for what you do.
