    Beautiful Poem..

    *THE WORLD IS MINE*
    (Author Unknown)


    Today, upon a bus, I saw a very beautiful woman
    and wished I were as beautiful.
    When suddenly she rose to leave,
    I saw her hobble down the aisle.
    She had one leg and used a crutch.
    But as she passed, she passed a smile.
    Oh, God, forgive me when I whine.
    I have two legs; the world is mine.


    I stopped to buy some candy.
    The lad who sold it had such charm.
    I talked with him, he seemed so glad.
    If I were late, it'd do no harm.
    And as I left, he said to me,
    "I thank you, you've been so kind.
    It's nice to talk with folks like you.
    You see," he said, "I'm blind."
    Oh, God, forgive me when I whine.
    I have two eyes; the world is mine.


    Later while walking down the street,
    I saw a child I knew.
    He stood and watched the others play,
    but he did not know what to do.
    I stopped a moment and then I said,
    Why don't you join them dear?"
    He looked ahead without a word.
    I forgot, he couldn't hear.
    Oh, God, forgive me when I whine.
    I have two ears; the world is mine.


    With feet to take me where I'd go,
    With eyes to see the sunset's glow,
    With ears to hear what I'd know,
    Oh, God, forgive me when I whine.
    I've been blessed indeed, the world is mine.


    _If this poem makes you feel thankful, just forward it to your friends. After all, it's just a simple reminder that we have so much to be thankful for! Give the gift of love. It never comes back empty!_

    I have been truly blessed with some very beautiful people in my life. And this comes as a token of thanks! ❤️

    Indeed. I READ IT Thrice.
    This is not a "serious" poem, but its message is powerful.

    I first read it 2014 it at a summer camp sponsored by a bath soap company at Chennai Island grounds. A christian father distributed with Jesus message this printed poem on a colourful paper into our stall.

    I have seen it credited to Dr. Tennyson Guyer (1913–1981), from Ohio, and at other times as "anonymous." There isalso a claim the original attributed to
    Joy Lovelet Crawford and say that stanzas fits the style of her other works.

    A cripple - a blind - a deaf - many born with minus faculties, babies delivered with congenital diseases and many of them never whine.

    As they grow with extra ordinary spirit and courage, even participate in Paralympic games and bring laurels to the nation.

    Many even climbed mountain Everest achieved That coveted Himalayan achievement.

    So the average born persons with all faculties intact has no justification to whine for their lack of achievements and inadequacies. S/He must be grateful for the benevolence of Almighty that s/he was beautifully designed conforming to normal standard specifications.

    One think of Beethoven.
    World class compositions he delivered when he was stone deaf. He was grateful to Jesus!
    Right now i am 70% deaf in one ear. When it reaches 100, the waiting world may have received my compositions! Hip hip hooray!
