Inspirational Poetry: Thank You
was I grateful for this …. gratitude?
Pulling gratitude threadbare across emaciated shoulders
Falling upon boney knees
I’ve shown my thanklessness for to long
Starved this self of love
To long let life flee before me
Of my inner eye
Tears so old, grown cold now cry
Why did arrogant selfish blind my way?
When it’s so simple to say
Thank you, thank you, thank you
Joy is my new nourishment
My gratitude feeds each part of my life
Anew, afresh, awake
Grateful for this life, this new day
Hold it high to the waking say
Carry it deep, in the way I pray.
