I want to preface this poem with the fact that I’ve been having a struggle with some wintertime depression and I just needed to write something to help shift my focus. I didn’t worry over this being perfect, but it represents me well.


If I were thankful
Instead of down
I’d wear a smile
And not a frown

My eyes would glint
My heart would melt
If being thankful
Was what I felt

So can I stop
This downward spiral
And let this thankfulness
Go viral

And turn my thoughts
From all my messes
Giving thanks to God
For all that blesses

To come and hold
This simple thought
That I have more
Than what I ought

That perfect love
Shows fear the door
So I may thank Him
