Gratitude

By- Traci Taylor
November 2014

Being consumed by bitterness is a personal prison.
Forcing clouded thoughts of negativity never brought sunshine.

There is no concrete answer about the path to gratitude.
It requires an open mind and a big heart to begin that journey.

To be ultimately grateful, expectations must not exceed.
Life is filled with bumps, dead ends, and forks in the road.

Take a deep breath and listen to the howling of the wind.
Be aware of the size of the universe that surrounds.

Do not immerse in hate, but dive into unconditional love.
Always forgive, never forget,
and most importantly live purposefully.
