Gratitude - A Poem

Updated on August 10, 2013

So you think you've had a hard day

Where everything just seems to go wrong

Look right,left and center

Yet find no shoulder to cry on


So maybe you think it's time to give up

Cos' to you, you've tried your best

You say Enough is Enough

As you get on your Knees

And cry out to the skies

Hoping for a little mercy


Be Grateful

For each new morning with its light,

For rest and shelter of the night,

For health and food,

for love and friends,

For everything Thy goodness sends.


Cos' there might Come a time

When you'll see no light

Feel no love

Have no Shelter nor health nor food


Be Grateful

Cos' Gratitude is the fairest blossom which springs from the soul.

      That's a monster write , note that monster in this comment means bigger than life. That's is what I believe top be great poetry, or if I had another name to call it , to avoid what's learnt.

      Shakespeare is Shakespeare and you are you, a beautiful child of some great parents, and here you did them well.

      Love it.

      Bless.
