Be grateful for what you have,

Instead of sulking over what you don't.

Being happy will serve the purpose

Of life, being depressed and crying won't.

I'm grateful for the sun that shines,

And the moon's soothing fluorescent light.

I'm grateful for the day that smiles,

And the mysterious charming night.

Instead of being just blood and bone.

That I don't have to live all alone.

With no illness that can claim me.

And for being where God wants me to be.

And sleep through the nights peacefully.

I'm grateful for a roof over my head,

For a world that chirps happily.

I'm grateful for the sweet smile on my face,

I'm grateful for the strength in a troublesome day.

I'm, grateful to have a good aim,

I'm grateful for choosing the right way.

I'm grateful that I know

This life is not a competition.

I'll compare my life with others-

I'm grateful I laugh for silly reasons,

And cry for things simple and innocent.

For the words that allow me to be coherent.

That I'll never even think of suicide.

I'm grateful that I keep going no matter what,

That I'm strong enough to face defeat.

That have given me the wonderful gift of sight.

I'm grateful for the sweet fragrance of flowers,

For the taste buds that can relish every bite.

I'm grateful to you God, for every single thing I have,

My life is your canvas; you colored it with paint dabs.

I'm grateful for my faith in you.

I'm grateful for everything that you make me do.
