being thankful

It's throwback Thursday
in fact these days
every Thursday is throwback Thursday
is every Friday
flashback Friday too
living in the past
is it all we can do
when the state of things
makes everything seem
like it's virtually impossible
to get through
unless we've got something
to look forward to
some words of wisdom
some source of inspiration
someone else has shared
even if it's the same thing
year after year
sometimes we see
how far we've come
other times we wonder
how we could be so dumb
as to make the same mistakes
over and over again
there's a certain restlessness
I'm feeling right now
like all those trees and flowers
still waiting to bloom
know I need to wait
just a little longer
just want it all in its full glory
right here right now
know how beautiful it will be
know how free that beauty
makes me feel
when everything is in full bloom
there's no place I'd rather be
than right here
being thankful
soon there will be so much beauty
surrounding me
right here where I live
