A Rap on Gratitude

The holiday season is a time for good cheer and gratitude. Here's a poem that will keep gratitude in your heart all year round. Have fun reciting or rapping it with your Thanksgiving guests.

Gratitude is the attitude to exude,
When you want to brood,
Feel like being rude,
Can't get in the mood.

Gratitude is the peace in your heart,
When you finish what you start,
Hold back a bark,
Forgive and forgot.

Gratitude is what you cultivate,
When you question your fate,
Think you don't rate,
Fight with your mate.

Gratitude is the love you feel,
When you help another heal,
Eat a good meal,
Get a fair deal.

Gratitude is the message to share,
When you see despair,
Are one of a pair,
Think you don't care.

Gratitude is the light of your being,
When you give your life meaning,
Keep your heart speaking,
Believe in dreaming.

Gratitude IS...the attitude!
