Two Poems: GRATITUDE POEM #ONE and THERAPY

 

Tekla A. Syers


GRATITUDE POEM #ONE

I cannot be grateful enough.

I cannot be gracious enough
OOto offset the grace
OOI receive.

I MUST say please.
I MUST say thank you.
I MUST offer joy.

And I love it this way.
What I love and enjoy
OOcomes to me.

I have peace of mind,
OOlove,
OOcomfort
OOand faith.

Wherever I am

OOthere is love
OOpeace,
OOcourage,
OOwisdom,
OOaliveness,
OOand power.

I am these.

There’s more than enough
OOof everything I desire.

I know because there’s always more
OOto be had.

Time is mine.

I choose my life
OOdecision by decision.

All I need is available to me
Did I mention, there’s always more?

I’m surrounded on every side
OOby opportunities for pleasure,
OOamusement,
OOaccomplishment,
OOand service.

For now
OOI am busy
OOenjoying myself,
OOlaughing and learning.

I choose my mood
OOand live in that environment.

I enjoy the colors,
OOand sounds,
OOand tastes,
OOand smells,
OOtextures, and
OOthe always thrilling something more.

I am grateful

Good abounds.

Life lives as me.


THERAPY

Shining truthlight
OOon these dark secrets

Searching the corners
OOin my heart and mind.

Owning
OOmy denials and deceits.

Acknowledging
OOthe less than
OOIn me.

Leaving lies
OOno place to hide.

Letting die
OOwhat must die.

Doing what’s best
OOwith the worst in me.

And living
OOmy life anew.
