What I'm Thankful For Slam

 

Phew! Well, you're in the homestretch-- it's almost a new year! And let's be honest here, the past year has been BIG. Either way you slice it, this year has been a tough one. Whether the obstacles you faced were personal, political, or both, you still made it. So take a minute to give yourself a congratulatory pat on the back. Go on, we'll wait.

To celebrate this time of year, we want to know what you're thankful for.

It's easy to get bogged down in the negatives, but it's important not to let that eclipse the good stuff. We've created this slam so you have a space to share what you're thankful for. Are you thankful for friends? family? for believing in yourself? Tell us and your fellow PowerPoets what makes you feel grateful (sharing those warm and fuzzy thoughts is also a super easy way to make everyone's day a little brighter).

Oh she too dark. Oh she too friendly. Oh she too skimpy. And her hair looks nappy.
