gratitude

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
inside

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
unconditional
undeserved
unlimited
unending

and i give thanks
