Perspective of Problems

I’m lucky to be alive,
I’m blessed I haven’t yet died,
I’m thankful I’m not jailed,
I’m glad the harm against me failed,
There are some with a diagnosis,
Symptoms of the mind to know this,
Some are homeless, others are dead,
Yet I can write this to be read,
To celebrate how much I’ve overcome,
My life is not yet over or done,
Compassion, mockery, pain, or laughter,
Then arrives the calm with a storm after,
We all have problems to deal with,
Content of character pulls me through this.
