Water flows freely through the tap, but it means so little until it dries
up. When I am thirsty I long for something that means so little to me. I
exist in a peaceful society, but I don't wake with gratitude everyday
because I have not experienced the lack of peace first hand.
I think we should all stop and look around us and learn to be grateful for
those things that are invisible to us until they are gone.

This is one of the greatesat poems i have ever read in my life. I didn't
understand it at first, but my teacher explained it. Once i realized what
it meant i thought it was so true. People never realize what they have
until they don't have it anymore. It's truly a beautiful poem
