Gratitude fills my soul from the start to the end
To be alive in this universe, the odds did bend
Most of the cosmos filled with vast empty space
One of the few conscience beings are the lucky human race
Cheers to the knowledge that exists of this vast endless system
Cheers to see other galaxies and if we are lucky to someday visit them
95% of our universe we refer to as dark
Dark Energy and Dark Matter leave very little mark
5% of beauty that is so very bright
I call this a gift not a plight
Simply to be alive and aware
This thankfulness aleives my cares
Just like all people, daily things get on my nerves
How can so many be so horrible or just follow the herd?
Those moments come and pass
Gratitude for so many gifts doth last and last
Here's to life
Here's to death
Here's to this moment
Here's to this breath...
I love poetry.
