Be Grateful Not Greedy

How many times
Do we actually
Take a step back
And actually
Take the time
To be grateful
For all the things
We already have
Instead of
Wishing we
Had more
When will we
Finally learn
That when it
Comes to
Material things
The more
We have
The more
We will
Only think
We need
And none of it
Will ever
Really make us
As happy
As we think
It will
So next time
You obsess
Over getting
The next
Best thing
Think twice
And then
An alternative
Helping those
Who have
Less than you
It's rewarding
And a great reminder
To be grateful
Just to have
What we already have
And remember
True wealth
Is measured
In love, family,
Friends, and
Not money
And certainly
Not things
