Thanksgiving Special - Thankful

by K.D. Sanders
(Marathon, Florida, United States)

I wrote this poem this morning while I was selling newspapers like a hooker on the corner of Desperate and Pathetic.


THANKFUL


THANKFUL
FOR THE FOOD I EAT
THANKFUL
FOR THE BED I SLEEP
THANKFUL
FOR THE LORD
MY SOUL TO KEEP
THANKFUL
FOR THE SEEDS
TO SOW AND REAP
THANKFUL
FOR THE FAITH
I LEAP

THANKFUL
FOR THE GIFTS
PRESENTED TO ME
THANKFUL
FOR MY PARENTS
RESTING IN PEACE
THANKFUL
FOR EVERYONE I MEET
EXCEPT THOSE WHO THINK
THEIR STUFF DON'T STINK

THANKFUL
FOR THE PEOPLE AND THINGS
THAT MAKE THIS WORLD
A BETTER PLACE
THANKFUL
FOR THE BIRDS
WHO COME TO FEED
THANKFUL
FOR MY FEETS
SO I CAN GO-GO
IN THE STREETS

THANKFUL
FOR LIVING IN A COUNTRY
THAT IS FREE
THANKFUL
FOR THE MEN AND WOMEN
WHO MAKE IT BE

THANKFUL
FOR THE HIGHER POWER
FOR WHOM
MAKES IT
ALL POSSIBLE

THANKFUL
FOR YOU
TO LOOK AND SEE
THE WORDS I WRITE
ON THE PAGES
IN BETWEEN

Happy Thanksgiving Everybody!!

Cherish the ones you love.

And if you don't have anyone to love, love yourself!

If you lost a love, remember the good times you had and move on!

Life's too short to dwell on the past.

Be thankful for what you have
