By Edwin Dubose
Most of us miss out on life’s big prizes
The winning lottery numbers
The Oscars, the Tonys, the Emmys, The Pulitzer, the Nobel
Bust most of us have forgotten that we are all eligible
For Life’s small pleasures, which are also winners
Lunch at Bishop Cosgrove
A cold 40-ounce, a kiss, a hug, perfect weather
Waking up from a good night’s sleep
So don’t fret about copping life’s grand awards
And enjoy its tiny delights.
Cause there’s plenty for all of us.
