Feeling Like Dirt
By: Julie McElhinney
So I heard you were feeling like dirt
All walked on and stuck to the ground,
Tired, lonely and a little hurt
Feeling like the only piece of crud around.
Next time you feel this icky
Lonely, fed up and sad,
I want you to remember the good
When you think you feel this bad.
For God made dirt amazing
After all it helps the flowers grow,
It holds up the tallest buildings
And it helps the water flow.
So next time you feel like dirt
Low down and sad as can be
Perhaps you should think harder
And find a better simile.
