Grateful Heart

A poem

How can my heart not sing its gratitude,
and not show kindness where I go
our lives are governed by our attitude

Being positive does not spare us difficulties
but it sure helps us to endure them
surrounded by color in flowers, birds, and trees

So a thankful heart is mine for all reminders
of the beauty in the world, in most people,
the trials I face are eased by my thank yous

I've read poetry since I was nine and have written creatively since I was fourteen (probably long before that). After writing book reviews and social comment, I decided I wanted to write poetry. I have no formal training, but I surround myself with poets and their writing. I am honing my craft.
I have two published collections which I don't feel good about, but have been published by and other publications. I live on the south coast of England with my daughter. I am seriously ill.
