Give Thanks, World Mental Health Day

Thank you for the food I eat

Even though I can’t taste it

Thank you for the warmth of home

Even though I’m still chill

Thank you for my loved ones

Even though my heart is lonely

Thank you for the laughter

Even though I don’t join in

Thank you for each breath

Despite this heavy chest

I know I’m only breathing

Because I have life left

So, I am still thankful

I chose to hold that tight

Because each beat, each blink

Is a gift and helps me fight

– Give Thanks
