I Give Thanks For

honest gratitude
like a social enigma
in a world of polite thanks
where good manners outweigh vulnerability
because we are a home of independence
and yet no one is truly alone
each is pushed forward by the crowd
though it is forgotten or ignored
so I give thanks to all who lift me up
especially those who right me when I stumble
as I bow my head over the meal
I shall remember that you nourished my life first
