thank you

    cynicism comes with coffee
    as artificial as sweetener
    we’ve grown accustomed
    to the bitter aftertaste
    negative is normal
    critiques and criticisms
    pass for conversation in
    a culture short on courage
    and long on loud

    gratitude is hard work
    to choose to be thankful
    requires the tenacity
    of a heart broken open
    and willing to sit silently
    on a starlight night or in
    the shadow of a bee’s wing
    the opposite of fear
    is thank you — thank you

    Peace,
    Milton

    1. Thank you, Milton. I have started practising thankfulness daily, and when you’re heart is breaking, it is really a hard discipline! May I share this with friends on facebook? -Ali
