Grateful

I take a look around
Despite how I feel,
I am grateful
I have food, I have shelter and I have clothes
I am grateful
I have access to water and clean air
I am grateful
I have the privilege to sit, “think” and write this poem
I am grateful
I have the opportunity to “begin again”
I am grateful
Despite how I feel,
How can I NOT be grateful?
