There I Was Again Tonight,
Sitting With The Family,
Passing The Food.

I Just Sat There,
Letting Everyone Else,
Have Their Share First.

Did I Care?
A Tiny Bit,
But My Heart Was Guiding Me,
Telling Me To Put Myself Last.

I Don't Like To Think Of Myself.
Only God Knows Why,
And I Thank Him For It.

I Hate Being Vain,
I Honestly Do...

Then It Was My Turn.
There Was So Much Left,
It Looked As Though,
A Dent Hadn't Even Been Made.

I Grabbed A Thin Slice Of Turkey,
And Two Biscuits.

They Told Me To Eat More,
To Dig In!...
But I Just Shook My Head.

They Snickered At Me,
At The Picky Boy.
I Shook My Head A Second Time.

They Didn't Understand...

Nevertheless,
We Bowed Our Heads,
And One Man,
My Dear Uncle,
Spoke.

We All Listened,
Listened With Sincerity.

When He had Finished,
Everyone Grabbed At Their Food,
Almost As If,
They Were Starving To Death...

But I Could Tell They Weren't...
I'm The Only One,
Without Much To Look At...

I Just Sat There,
Staring Into Space.

I Couldn't Help But Think...

Think About The Ones,
Who Don't Have Food,
Who Don't Have Family,
Who Don't Have Anything...
To Thank For.

I Searched My Pocket,
And Plugged In My Earphones,
Desperately Wanting...
Not...To Tear Up...

The First Song That Played,
Was The Only One I Actually Wanted...
To Hear...

...
Here's Your One Chance,
To Make A Difference.
Here's Your One Choice,
To Giving A Helping Hand.
There's Room At The Table For More~...
Here's Hope.


...
My Mother Then Asked Me,
Why I Looked So Depressed.

I Only Showed A Weak Smile,
And Spoke Something...
Both True...And Meaningful...

"Someone Else Can Have My Food...
I Don't Need It."
:icontruestoryplz:

I Feel Depressed Every Thanksgiving...
And This Is Pretty Much The Reason Why.

The Song Is Owl City's "Here's Hope."

I Guess They Were Willing To Do The Right Thing,
If You Asked Me. ^^;

:) My sister's boyfriend, when we sat down, looked at the table and said 'My gosh! Just imagine how many people we could feed.' This Thanksgiving it was only my parents, and most of my siblings, and James, my sister's boyfriend. We had hardly made a dent in it. We all just sorta stared at it. It's so true, though, how many people could we have fed?

Great Poem, although you're not vain. I would never see you as vain. Uploading this poem, thinking about others, is what proves that you aren't. :) :hug:

Do You Know How Many Homes Are EMPTY At This Moment?
It's Heartbreaking How They Can't Live In One,
Because They Don't Have "Valuable Strips Of Paper." :grump:
