I’d like to have an attitude of gratitude
embrace me more
as my time unwinds
and leaves a path of memories.
Sometimes I’m able to –
I see others not much different than I
coping with agendas that would do me in
were they to touch my dailyness with such darkness.
Thankfulness induced by woes that I don’t share
seems slightly strange –
yet often that is how it is with me.
