thanksgiving (acrostic)

thankful for the world i see
hopeful for whats to be
anxious for whats to come
not ashamed of what ive done
knowing that i smile inside
showing that im still alive
greatful for those of whom
i ve leaned upon a time or two
various times when i am down
i think of you and lose my frown
never could i show enough
giving thanks to those i love

Well Done. With many people thinking they deserve everything they have, they forget to be greatful.

Dano, I am touched with this humble and loving gratitude of words. YOu have said what matters most above any turkey, pie, or materialism. ginga

i think people so often overlook what is important in life and if we'd all just take a step backwards and take a look around everyone would realize that it is right in front of us... but still so many walk around with blinders on oblivious to the world around them and only able to focus what is straight ahead... thanks for the comment

Poetry is what is lost in translation.

Robert Frost (1875-1963) American Poet.
