the world

the world
doesn’t owe you
a thing
it gave you
a one in a billion chance
at life
supplies air
water
bountiful food.

is it easy

no
it shouldn’t be
if everything
were handed to you
would you understand
the feeling of
accomplishment.

when it weighs heavy
on me
i think of the ones
that didn’t
make it this far
the ones
that gave everything
so the rest of us
could be here.

i find that helps
when a case of
the woe is me
lingers.
