Why am I so unlucky?

Why am I so lucky?

Why don’t I have a job?

Why do I at least have money in the bank?

And a roof over my head?


Why can’t I get standup work?

Why am I not stuck in a wheelchair?


I really wish I was seeing someone

But I’m grateful that I can see at all.


Every day I want to hear some good news

Though I’m glad I can hear anything


I always reach out for that brass ring

But I still have all my fingers

Both my arms

And all my legs to reach for it


Life isn’t always fun

But it’s still good to have.
