Abdul Wahab


>>>>The Beauty Of Gratitude


I forgot to express gratitude
For the lovely green garden which I had
As the seeds which I planted were of lack
Though gradually the trees grew big and tall
But did not bear any flower or fruit

The feeling of lack
And the feeling of gratitude
Can not go hand in hand
So had I grumblings
And began to complain
The tress shed their leaves
And I went restless and became pale

But when in despair I gave up
And buried all expectations
Slowly, I saw, the garden returned into green
I thanked a lot in gratitude
In turn trees bore in plenty flowers and fruits.

    it is quite natural of the erring, negligent and quite forgetful of all of us that we mostly forget not only to express but even feel any gratitude...though our bookish knowledge is completed by the fact that gratefulness is one of the fountainhead of virtues...the way you have outlined the composition for conveying this msg is effective! ! !

    Yet another example that the IT IS appreciates any Soul's true detached gratitude. Thanks for sharing this with us! Cheers! (Report) Reply

    A very beautiful write, filled with gratitude for what is, instead of bemoaning what is not, the result is a flourishing in the garden of life, because gratitude attracts abundance into our lives, while lack of it attracts more want and need. Even the smallest thing is a blessing and we should be ever thankful and grateful for having received it, that way, we will always have enough and there will never experience feelings of lack of anything in our lives. We will always be happy with what we have. Another poetic gem, Abdul, with a lesson for your reader. Thank you for sharing. Blessings in abundance to you always... (Report) Reply
