In Retrospect

They thought it so strange, so very strange
That someone could be thankful for pain.
Each one at separate intervals marveled, blanched at someone marring the Thanksgiving Tree with those words,

Being easily that someone,
I wondered the ultimate question:
If we can’t be thankful for the pain,
The inevitable heartbreak, the imminent death, the physical ailments,
Then what is there at all
To post upon the thankful branches?
