Inspirational Poetry: Thank You

Inspirational Poetry: Thank You

by Liam

When last,

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

The ignorance

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.
