Slam! Another closed door hits my face
Ouch! Yet another blow to my mind
Why the opposition? The painful rejection?
Anger, fear, and disappointment swim in my mind
The ocean dark, full of dread
The waves overpowering, overriding all hope
Yet in this murky abyss my heart speaks to my mind
Count your countless blessings
Fill your soul with light
The light of gratitude, that shines so very bright
The light breaks through the darkness,
The abyss begins to dissipate
A sea of thanksgiving fills my once dark view
Water filled with joy, waves of love
Friends, family, memories
Leave no room for misery.
Blessings are a wondrous gift
That warm the soul
Filling my mind and heart with simple, pure joy.
