Count your blessings

By Siri Anjali


People say, "Count your blessings".
I say, "Give me a break!"
Tell me something I haven't heard...
There's only so much I can take.

People say,  be calm it takes time to happen
I say, "Oh please!"
That'll happen but in the future,
What I needed was  an immediate results
People say, "Oh I've been there for you .."
I say, "Oh really?"
But i last asked for them help
They are the people who learnt me tht be in the highest position never ask help for anyone...
People say, "Hang in there, the light will come".
I say, "Screw the light! I just needed to vent!"
You wanted to hear my thoughts...
So listen and allow me to rant!
People say a whole lot of crap.
Because they don't know any better or what else to say.
When all they needed to do was...
Be there and listen... I promise it won't take all day.
