Overlook

What have you overlooked lately?

Who’s love have you taken for granted?

What experiences in your past

Have you chosen to despise

That actually led you to where you are now?

Who’s praise did you brush off too quickly?

All too easily we find ourselves

Retelling stories of how we’ve been shortchanged;

Making much of the misfortune of life

And making little of the beauty it offers daily.

It is the curse of humanity

To often savour good things temporarily

And yet harbour a sour taste in our mouths

Almost indefinitely.

What have you overlooked lately?
