Poetry

Being Thankful

by Monica C. , Grade 4, Manor Elementary School, Austin, TEXAS USA
Teacher: Pamela Gray

Let’s be thankful!

I’m thankful for many things

But what about you?

I’m thankful for. . .

Coming to understand the range of emotions

A human is capable of feeling,

High to low - -

I’m thankful . . .

I had to get back up

At each of these paralyzing turns

I’m thankful . . .

Someone is always there to bring me back up on my feet.

Somewhere in my soul, I was able to maintain faith

I’m thankful . . .

There’s always a greater power

That hasn’t given up on me yet.

I watched my family leave,

And they came back.

People accept me now

For who I am

Somewhat of a role model

I’m thankful for . . .

Experiences, emotions,

          Getting back up,

                   Maintaining Faith.
