Why do I have two functioning eyes?
And with it I see the beauty all around me
The sunrise and the sunsets
All the colors of the rainbow
So enchanting and magical
Life doesn’t need to be colorful
Why do I have many taste buds?
I am able to taste sweet chocolates and different fruits
Strawberries, cherries, watermelons and all
Sour lemonades and salty popcorns
Yummy chips dip in spicy chili sauce
Food doesn’t need to be tasty
Why do I have a roof over my head?
No rains, thunderstorms, bombs or rockets
Dry and warm
And I have a comfortable bed that I can literally jump in
I do not have to worry that a bug might crawl into my nose or ears
Safe and sound
Why do the systems in my body work perfectly?
The respiratory, nervous, digestive, endocrine, lymphatic
Muscular, reproductive, skeletal, urinary and did I miss any?
It even works when I sleep!
And I don’t even need to think through the steps to move my fingers,
It just happened!
These are some of the questions that I never asked
Ignoring all these blessings all along
I hardly ever thank you or praise you
You have given me so much
And with Your gifts I use it to go against You
And You still showered me with Your love
Blessings after blessings
Chances after chances
But I know that day will come
Where I will stand in front of you
And I will be asked about the things I did
I remembered the sins I did
But I have forgotten much more
I am your property
All of it
I accept myself as slave
But I need your help
I will only know if you teach me
I need an instruction manual
To please you
Make me among those who have knowledge
And act upon it
Sincerely and wholeheartedly
Not those who misguides themselves and others knowingly
To only please themselves
Nor those who act in accordance with their desires unknowingly
To please you
