Gratitude Poem

This just sort of came out one night and I thought I'd share. I don't love it, but I like the idea that came out of the exercise. When writing this, I just let the pen fly, taking me wherever. What I felt as I penned those last six phrases: "Give thanks, give thanks, give thanks, give thanks, give thanks, give thanks," is that when we feel gratitude, things are steady and even. Rather than having super highs and devastating lows, rather than going one way just to realize you need to turn around and go back, life has a steady, rhythmic heartbeat.

The last three "give thanks" are supposed to resemble a heart monitor.
