Purpose & Gratitude



Every year we reflect
Our life spent pursuing
We learn to correct
A dream worth enduring

We live our lives in haste
Constantly on the move
Unguided and misplaced
Always looking to prove

So when the holidays come
We take a break from activity
We remember where we’re from
We find joy in friends and family

Regardless what faith you believe
We all embrace the holiday cheer
A time we’d rather give than receive
A time to be thankful and sincere

About this poem

The holiday time is upon us, and it’s time to be thankful
