Simple Thanks

today I pray giving thanks for all the simple treasures,
appreciating the ones i love for all their simple measures, 
today i leave all the pain and nightmares in the past,
today is a day of hapiness for the time being make it last,
put a smile on your face and take a step in the right direction,
release the cage of expectations and stop aiming for perfection,
forgive your worst enemies and pray for peace and love,
and thank god for everything that you have for being more than enough

    Wonderful poem! My favorite line: "Put a smile on your face and take a step in the right direction" That's what I tell myself when I'm feeling down. Thank you so much for this beautiful and meaningful poem! God bless..

    sad was not my intention though. My message is that Im putting sad in the past today and embracing hapiness and giving thanks on the holiday. :)
