Thankful

Grateful

Appreciative, in some way

 

What is this feeling?

Is it here to stay?

 

Tired

Lonely

Overwhelmed, at times

 

Gratitude is hard

When it isn’t what you feel

on the inside

 

Gratitude, for what you have

Thankfulness, for what you can do

Appreciation, for what you are given

Does that ring true?

 

What is gratitude?

 

It is acknowledging your rough patches

It is standing up when you feel like staying down

It is rising to the occasion

It is swimming when you feel the urge to drown

 

Gratitude does not mean happiness

It does not ignore the trials

It sees the tribulations

It is persevering through another mile

 

Am I grateful?

That’s like asking: Are you are strong?

Yes, but strength is different

Depending on which road you are on

 

I am gratitude

Strength in my resilience and stride

I am gratitude

I have been challenged and tried

 

I stood up

I took on those attributes

I am grateful for what’s to come

I see what I have had

My thankfulness has just begun

 

What is gratitude?

It is a tie that binds,

We are who or what someone else is thankful for

We are the gratitude in their eyes
