Granted by Dylan Mulvey-Welsh

I’ve gladly given over my blog to my very talented son… chime in and let us know what you think!

We all take things for granted,

This and that,

Our minds become slanted,

People not happy with what they have

And soon become disenchanted.

The latest version of this isn’t up to our standards,

So everyone begins ranting

And panting

Because we’d rather complain about our things than go outside.

No one anymore has cognition,

People are told what to do and believe it

And they follow the predisposition,

Even if it’s truth,

Or just a superstition.

If they say it’s true it must be,

It’s making people give redefinitions

People who have little really have the most,

Because they know,

They know what it feels like to only eat raw toast,

And people walk around with their items and boast,

And it’s gross.

Why are we like this?

Why do we do this?

Let’s not get something new and hiss

Or buy something and then be pissed,

Enjoy what we have because not everyone can,

So let us take someone’s hand,

And make a stand.
