Poem: Thankful

I’m thankful for each day,

That God has allowed me to see,

I’m thankful for my gifts,

Using them to inspire and uplift,


I’m thankful for the good times,

I’m thankful for the hard times too,

I’m grateful for knowing,

That God’s grace protects me and you,


I’m thankful for the beauty of the scenery,

Green grass, tall trees and endless plains,

Tall buildings, malls, and houses,

The hills, highways and two-way street lanes,


I’m thankful for forgiveness,

I’m thankful for dreams come true,

I’m thankful that I’ve been chosen,

Even when I’ve struggled to make it through,


Thankful and grateful,

Provided with grace and mercy,

Looking forward to the present and future,


Thankful … so thankful.

      I am thankful too for the blessings that I have. I have long stopped complaining about how miserable my life was until I saw other people who are less fortunate... then I realize that I'm really blessed. I learn to appreciate everything that I have. Thanks also for your poem, I feel the same way as you do. :)
