Stop Complaining

Stop complaining about the traffic,
the woman in the accident up ahead was just pronounced dead.
Stop complaining about your “out of season” handbag,
a mother in Africa just wove a basket to carry her children’s food in.

Stop complaining about your extensions and your weave,
a cancer patient just watched their hair fall out onto their pillow.

Stop complaining about your small breasts,
a breast cancer survivor lost hers just to see another day.

Stop complaining about your car,
there’s parents out there walking and taking the bus to work.

Stop complaining…
before you’re given something to really complain about.
