Poetry Monday: Having Gratitude in Times of Pain

I try to appreciate what I have
And try to ignore the things that I want
I always get exactly what I need
And happiness is just there within me
I accept my world as it truly is
But some things still push me towards the darkness
Like walking a tight rope, I keep balance
And try ever so hard not to fall in
I cannot lose to the darkness again
