Earning every blessing

Imagine if we had to justify

Every breath,

At the ends of each day

Make a compelling argument

As to why we get to see another;

Daily coaxing our hearts

To keep beating,

Sweating just to keep

Our lungs rising and falling

Our sanity intact

Our blessings earned.

Tasking stock of all the things going right

Puts everything else in stark relief-

We are recipients of so much more

Unearned goodness

Than we are unlucky players

Stuck with the bad hands

Life deals us.
