This poem reminds me of when I was a child and all I knew were strangers

During the moments that I'm feeling down
On the days that I struggle, or think life's unfair
A bigger voice of wisdom speaks up and reminds me
That if it wasn't for strangers, I wouldn't be here

When daily pain from my body reaches its peak
When I question in confusion who will be there
When I think I'm alone, I'll just look out my window
And I know if I reach out a stranger will care

When I think that I carry the weight of the world
When I'm feeling lost, or I'm feeling stuck
I'll think back and remember all that I've accomplished
And how a stranger reached out along the way just to wish me luck

I'm in a world filled with many beautiful strangers
And I know now when I start to feel all alone
I'll recall the expression of warmth in their eyes
As many beautiful strangers' welcomed me into their home..

For all the strangers that haven't become family yet ?
Have a great life Journey ?
