Bloom Where You Are Planted




God placed you where you are
With a purpose in mind.
So bloom where you are planted
And happiness you'll find.

Don't envy your neighbor
If they seem to be better off.
Be thankful for the things you have
Don't complain and scoff.

God gave you a talent
Use it with all your might.
Don't wish you had another
God gives, and God's always right.

So bloom where you are planted
Don't waste your life in worry and doubt.
There's no place on this earth
From which He can't bring you out.
