Thankful


Suddenly

Boom

Fireworks

Exploding

In independence

An abundance

And ending to a curse?

Cautiously treading 

Into paradise

Accepting the gift

Knowing none of us deserve any of it

Is that what I was learning

Is that why I was thrown into the pit

To claw my way out

Well I’m here

Knuckles bleeding

Dirt seeped into my pores

I fall before this 

Lush landscape

And cry out 

In praise

Of what I’ve been given

So graciously 

Given

Knowing the bedrock

It is built on 

Even it 

Can crack

For now

I will sit

Smiling in my peace

Home has been a long time gone

I never thought I would feel it again
