THE WORLD IS MINE by Mohammed. A

World is mine
      Today, upon a bus, I saw a very handsome man

      and wished I was as handsome as he is.

      When suddenly he rose to leave,

      I saw him hobble down the aisle.

      He had one leg and used a crutch.

      But as he passed, he passed a smile.

      Oh, God, forgive me when I whine.

      I have two legs; the world is mine.

 
      I stopped to buy some candy.

      The lad who sold it had  such charm.

      I talked with him, he seemed so glad.

      If I were late, it’d do no harm.

      And as I left, he said to me,

      “I thank you, you’ve been so kind.

      It’s nice to talk with folks like you.

      You see,” he said, “I’m blind.”

      Oh, God, forgive me when I whine.

      I have two eyes; the world is mine.

 
      Later while walking down the street,

      I saw a child I knew.

      He stood and watched the others play,

      but he did not know what to do.

      I stopped a moment and then I said,

      Why don’t you join them dear?”

      He looked ahead without a word.

      I forgot, he couldn’t hear.

      Oh, God, forgive me when I whine.

      I have two ears; the world is mine.

 
      With feet to take me where I’d go, 

      With eyes to see the sunset’s glow, 

      With ears to hear what I’d know, 

      Oh, God, forgive me when I whine.

      I’ve been blessed indeed, the world is mine.
