Thank you lord for the gift of life
How could we ever pay you for that and
All the good things you have done for us
None of us will be alive if not for your
kindness, grace, love, faithfulness and protection,
So we gather here today to celebrate thanksgiving and to
Give glory to your holy name by giving praise to you -for
In this harsh and cruel world we live in you have blessed
Everyone of us and like the proverbial tree, we are
Indeed flourishing and thriving and also multiplying in
Number so for this and many more we are saying "thank you."
Gracious Lord accept our thanksgiving like you did Abel's.

God
Glory to our king
Trumpets and drums
Pound loud
Thanksgiving to our God
Joy in our hearts
He lives in us
Now

There is something comforting about a ****** ale
That first sip after a night spent
Vacating your insides,
Filling your empty, pink stomach with bubbles and
Scrubbing the bile away

Or that gentle reminder from your mother,
Handing you the can, slick with condensation
In the dark of your bedroom
Knowing you faked sick to skip school
But wanting to let you know anyway
That she cares
(Even though she is totally onto you)

Perhaps the day you had it for breakfast
During Thanksgiving break, when you slept
In till noon and ate the first thing you saw
When you walked in the kitchen:
Pecan pie leftovers and a ****** ale

So maybe that’s why
On those long nights, when nothing
Feels alright and I am terrified of
Losing you
I drink a ****** ale
And pretend I am warm in my bed
Faking sick for a few hours of sleep
Or drowsily making my way through
A house packed with family in for the holidays
Or perhaps just imagining
My mother’s presence
Whatever it is
For a few moments
It helps me feel alright.

I'm a turkey.

Yes
I peck all this crap out.

It makes my head
hurt

Hence
Wine

I pay for a finger print reader
I can't use

Stupid humans

Eat me.

The turkeys are gone
Empty fields,
Once full of birds,
Now with empty plucked skin.
The turkeys are gone,

The turkeys are gone. 
Empty chairs,
Around tables full of plates
With only remnants of their plenty.
Doors open in an empty house,
Once full of laughter,
Now silent.
The turkeys are gone

Although the world is ****** and I'd rather leave than stay,
There are many things I'm thankful for on this fine holiday,

And then they flee to somewhere else,
And you end up being someone else,
And they end up seeing someone else,
So your heart just gives up and melts,
But whatever feeling I'm feeling,
If I am feeling then I'm grateful,
Emotions must be constantly reeling in,
So I don't get lost in the dull sense of numb.
Thank You
A thanksgiving poem.

I dug a hole in my heart and filled with cement
So no matter how much I love one person
There will always be that part of me.
That doesn’t mind too much to let go
Of him.
I don’t want to hurt when I leave
Windy November day
Kept inside by the warm embrace
Of heaters
And soft clothes
Scents fill the air
Permeate me
Fill me up
Mushrooms in a sauce pan
Pungent slices of green
Pumpkin
Light a candle to ward off tears
Smoke and steam meet
Like lovers in the air
Warm folds of grey and gold
Wrap up slanted eyes
And silken midnight fur
The gentle thrum of a feline chest
Keeps time with a
Cribbage board
Butter melts
The soft crackle of frying things
The gentle fragrance of tea
Three women together
While winds rage outside
Leaves, stripped from trees
Litter the sodden ground
Rain patters down
Tops of trees dance
But inside
We are warm
And together
And for that, I am thankful
Happy Thanksgiving folks.
I'm thankful for the time to reflect
To feel warm embraces of memories
Emotions of lighthearted joy, and
Scenes of my life that conclude with
Their own heartfelt epilogues

Thankful to shed tears
Serving as reminders
That no matter the hardship
We are one as human

Keeping internal connections alive
Breathing in this life to the fullest

I explore in self
What I can give
Back to this journey

My eternal gratitude
For moments like this
And loved ones like you.
I wrote this piece last year for Thanksgiving, but its message goes for each and every day. Let us always spread love and warmth, and open our hearts to each other. Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Cherish what you have, and remember that you are loved, always.
