Gratitude

One of the most difficult

Attitudes to cherish is gratitude.

When too easily won,

It gets lost in the platitudes

Of everyday life. 

Like a withered flower

Gone too soon to be admired. 

When too hard attained 

Again it gets lost 

In the certitude of a hardened heart.

Complaints abound,

Crowding out the space 

Where gratitude should resound. 

Gratitude is the simplest attitude of all.

Yet simplicity, is where the complexity

Of the emotion arises. 

It takes extra care 

To acknowledge gratitude,
So it is no wonder 

That of all the little wonders,

Gratitude, in all its simplicity

Results in the greatest reward of all.
