Thank You for Me

I thank you for the setbacks
that set me up for comebacks
and I thank you for the challenges
allowing me to triumph.
I thank you for the darkness
since it helps me see the light
and I thank you for the sorrow
only possible by love loss.
And I thank you for my flaws
and even more that I accept them
and I thank you for my demons
the reason I have found my angels.
I thank you for the weight I bear
since now I get to lose it
and I thank you for the cravings
that I’ve squandered after decades.
I thank you for my loneliness
since it may last a lifetime
and I thank you for my memories
since I live life in the past.
I thank you for the rainy days
bringing change and room to grow
and I thank you for a world at war
that I write down page by page.
I thank you for the fears I have
striving daily to be free
and I thank you for this unburnt soul
the phoenix I was meant to be.
