Failures help one grow as a person.

Appreciation is important and I, therefore,
want to send mine to all this Thanksgiving.

I want to thank my family for
simply be there and provide
me with support and comfort,
for standing side-by-side
through tough times when I just want to desert
this painful and disappointing world.
They take here and there
to show me what’s worth,
to show me what’s important
and show the different paths
of which I will soon be choosing.

I appreciate my school
for the education it so well delivers
and for giving me a chance
to play with the TI-84 calculators.

The things I often overlooked are the ones
constantly helping me; so today,
I would like to take a moment to thank
the air, the air so long unappreciated, for allowing
to breath and relax and enjoy
the cool breezes during my meditation.

I am grateful for the Earth,
with its non-Euclidean geometry,
for giving us all a place to live
and some a class to teach and
deliver physics lectures.
I want to thank you in advance
for serving us for the rest your life, well,
before you meet up with your best friend
in a catastrophic explosion
or we all die from an angry
magnetic shift that your friend desires.

Nonetheless, I want to thank him too,
the largest nuclear reactor of our time.
For so long, you have not steered us wrong, Sun.
Thank you for providing us with light and energy
and the beauty of summer’s day.

I want to thank all,
all who helped me
and harmed me
and constituted any aspect of my life.
Aah! That feels good. I must do this more often,
not just on Thanksgiving Day.
