How can I express what I’m thankful for?
This breath I breathe makes me feel relief as I believe that I deserve everything I achieve
I sit back and Concede to the truth that the people around me shower me with glee
From cheek to cheek I feel free because I’m capable of receiving a beautiful blessing of life and liberty
I am grateful for my family
My gratitude extends far beyond my blessings of life
I get to live right because I am grateful that this skin that radiates within as it absorbs the sun giving me this absolute glow
I am grateful for my predecessors,
For they fought for my freedoms to come
I am grateful for my mother, without her, I wouldn’t know where I’d be
I show gratitude to my friends,
They give me the faith to achieve unlimited possibilities
What wouldn’t I be grateful for? I live a beautiful life
And yes I battle with strife and fighting to make black lives matter
However, in this world of horrifying realities, I am thankful that I can come home to a loving family and a home.
Not a house,
But a home,
I am thankful that this world is designed for me to conquer it, and that I have the backing to do so.
