TITLE: I'VE BEEN BLESSED

I may never have a million dollars in the bank
But I've been blessed with a decent government job with a GS-13 rank

I may never be skinny or have a tight body
I may never be considered a babe or a hottie
But I've been blessed with brains for I made magna cum laude

I may never be a mother
I May never bare a child
But I've been blessed with sharing my life and joys with others
With just a mere smile

I may never be the first woman President
I may never live in the White House
But I've been blessed with a roof over my head; a resident

I may never be a runway, billboard or magazine model
I may never be on the cover of Essence, Jet or Ebony
But I've been blessed with a talent like poetry
Where I can spread the good news about God the Almighty

There are lots of things that I may never be
But my blessings from God are continuous and abundantly

Monique, This poem was so much fun and held a wonderful message as well. :^)

This is a very cute poem! There are few words that you can cut here and there, but overall I thought it was great.

I wrote this poem prior to 2003. I was childless then. It fit right on in with the poetry challenge.

Good job. We can always compare ourselves to others and feel less than, but you are so right. With God we have so much more!
