the flipside

she would not forget
the things she had
how they were not what she needed
the things she so desired
she would remember -
what she wanted
she wouldn't have
what she craved
she wouldn't touch
as time moved on

she stayed
forever miserable
without these things -
having only what she needed

counting stars
a moon of her own
she could smile at

dreaming dreams
her blessings
she'd count on fingers and toes

she did not need to be told 
of gratitude
all that she wanted
she lacked

next to others
she was one of the few who weren't
blessed with fortune - 

read again - backwards.
