Little Do We Realize

Little do we realize, the value of things,

Not until it was taken away from us.

Little do we realize, the value of simplicity,

Until we face the emptiness of success.

 

Little do we realize, the value of prayer,

Not until we were brought to our knees by a trial.

Little do we realize the value of peace,

Not until a war broke surrounding us.

 

Little do we realize, the value of a friend,

Not until we face some difficulty.

Little do we realize, the value of life,

Not until one of our beloved dies.

 

Little do we realize the value of God,

Not until we’ve reached near the end of our ropes.

Little do we realize our fleeting lives,

Not until we go to the house of mourning.

 

Little do we realize the value of our own lives,

Not until we face the end of our lives.

    Little do we realize when we take for granted that which should be dear to us.

      I agree… Maybe that is one of the reasons why we are told to count our blessings, so we will not fall into the snare of taking for granted the things that God has blessed us with.
