crooked ways

I'm staring in the mirror and I like that
my teeth are straight.
my hair is getting long again.
my body doesn't ache.

I'm thinking of my week and I love that
my friends are happy people.
my bike still squeaks.
my mom loves me.
my dad thinks I'm funny.

and for once I forget my crooked ways,
and the things that once made me hurt
seem to disappear.

It took me a while to notice,
but life is really great
and God has yet again blessed my life.
