We take things for granted
And so we should
Is that not, at least partially, the point in freedom?
Otherwise we could spent every waking moment
Wracked in agony
Crying at the things that have gone before us
Look at the things going on right now
Surely every word uttered
Would be one of mourning or regret or sadness
My eternal gratitude is there for those who have sacrificed
Recently, before I was born, before my parents were born
That such sacrifices are necessary saddens and sickens me
So occasionally I take my freedom for granted, consciously
Otherwise, I would be paralyzed by remorse
And your sacrifice would have been for naught
last 2. perfect. gratitude is best as a backdrop, not the main event.
Indeed. Thank you!!
