Originally a Thanksgiving poem (kinda).
It's a blessing to be alive Even if you're struggling And I'm struggling right now I forget to be thankful Still wake up every morning Thank the Lord for the day Then again at night While I wonder for what Forgetting my blessings I get anxious so easily Wondering how long before The good gets bad and the bad gets worse
Classes tearing asses up Stresses showing in our tresses But still we're blessed Blessed because we woke up this morning I'm grateful even though I feel like death and can't focus as much I'm happy and grateful Yet too exhausted and worn to fully appreciate what I'm happy about
I'm grateful for the meals I have Grateful for the ride I received saving me a second trip through the rain Grateful for the kind words from a friend or stranger And encouraging words when I need them most I'm grateful I'm not currently in a toxic relationship And grateful for all the toxic ones I'm out of I'm thankful for warm clothes Even when I'm ill prepared and not wearing them I'm grateful for my cat cuz he helps calm me down I'm grateful for books Providing an escape from chaotic reality when I have the time I'm grateful for my family, dysfunction and all Cause without them I don't know how I'd function
So I'm grateful that even when things are going wrong, Or going against my imagined script, Something's still going right in my life
