A Time For Thanks Poem by Boston Kelley

A Time For Thanks

What things can we not be thankful for?
How can we not express gratitude?
There is a time to give thanks,
to know what we are grateful for.

I give thanks to my college,
for providing me with a godly,
encouraging, and supportive community.

I give thanks to the Honors Program,
for enlightening me and opening my
mind to a world unknown.

I give thanks to my friend, Elizabeth,
for showing me the joy and value of reading.

I give thanks to my girlfriend, Emily,
for opening me up to new experiences,
and giving me confidence in places I lacked it.

I give thanks to my mother,
who has been an inspiring figure in my faith.

I give thanks to my step-mother,
who has encouraged and guided me,
and influenced me to seek God.

I give thanks to my father,
who has shown me what it means
to be a godly man and a father.

To my God, I give the greatest thanks,
for teaching and guiding me,
saving me from my sins and loving me
when I didn't deserve it,
and giving me a new life.
