IT’S ALMOST THANKSGIVING

IT’S ALMOST THANKSGIVING

This November has quite a bit of anger and stress,

There is mistrust and a country becoming more divided.

Crime and rioting is an everyday occurence in our nation and world,

It’s almost Thanksgiving in a land of hostility and resentment.

As the holiday gets closer and the year’s end closes in, we think,

We all lose or gain something, struggles may be few or too much,

At times in our own world, fighting for our own daily survival.

You are fortunate if on Thanksgiving there is a roof over your head,

A bed in which you just came from, a warm fire and some love.

To wake in good health, at times taken for granted is precious,

It’s almost Thanksgiving, a little less anger, a helping hand or smile.
