Does it not amaze you
that your fingernails
grow faster than your toe nails –
or that the hair on your head
(if you still have any)
keeps on growing
whereas all your other hair
stops when it feels long enough.


Then there are all those things inside you
like your heart and lungs and kidneys, etc
that work to maintain you
even if you ignore them.


There are lots of reasons
to count our blessings
but if we do not count them
those things mentioned
ignore our indifference
and keep plugging away.
