any attempt
at thankfulness in words
on this day
rattles with cliché
reeks of expectation

what to do
when blessings abound
but life is closing in

how to say
i am thankful
(for so much)
over the clamor
the constant noise
the distressing chaos

i am blessed
and i am thankful
and i am a mess
heart full
yet broken
and it all coexists

letting it be
without guilt or pressure
without suppression
no hiding
no drowning
no self-loathing
is one ability
one gift
one victory

the lover of my soul
my Jesus
anoints me with the balm
of understanding
graces me with the salve
of love

and i give thanks
