Ingrates by Default

At times we're such ingrates;
So unappreciative.
We don't acknowledge God;
Yet, still, He lets us live.

We're so preoccupied,
Just thinking of ourselves.
As if there's no one else...
Within ourselves, we delve.

We push kindness aside.
Dis character and stride.
At best, our thoughtfulness
Is so marred by our pride.

But a "mote" of kindness
Is a great place to start
For real transformation
And healing of the heart.
