“Hope” is the thing with feathers - That perches in the soul - And sings the tune without the words - And never stops - at all - And sweetest - in the Gale - is heard - And sore must be the storm - That could abash the little Bird That kept so many warm - I’ve heard it in the chillest land - And on the strangest Sea - Yet - never - in Extremity, It asked a crumb - of me.

Londrelle - Gratitude


I’ve got to be thankful because

I know someone lost their life today

And so every moment I endeavor

To live life the righteous way

To serve with a sense of purpose

And let love light the way

Even if I died today

That’s just the price I paid

Just know I tried to be kind and

Seek the divine every night and day


Gratitude for the sunrise

Gratitude for the sunshine

Gratitude for the moonlight

Every day feels like a new life

Especially when I meditate

Take a breath, and then I elevate

Everything deserves gratitude

That’s my everyday attitude



Gratitude, that’s my everyday attitude. Gratitude

Gratitude, that’s my everyday attitude. Gratitude



Gratitude is the fruit of life

The nourishment of the soul

When there is no food in sight

When your vibrations are low

And you feel blue inside

Gratitude is the attitude that

Gets you through the night

Never believe in lack or limitations

Anything can be manifested

With a little appreciation


I appreciate my life. Asè

I appreciate my breath. Asè

I appreciate my sight. Asè

Gratitude for my health. Asè


Gratitude is the happiest mood

Even if I happen to lose

Everything deserves gratitude

That’s my everyday attitude


Gratitude, that’s my everyday attitude. Gratitude

Gratitude, that’s my everyday attitude. Gratitude



With a heart full of gratitude

And a mind full of peace

That’s how you should live

That’s how you should be

With a heart full of gratitude

And a mind full of peace

That’s how you should love

That’s how you stay free


2020 A.D. I just want to make love

I just want to make peace

I just want to stay free



2020 A.D. I just want to make love

I just want to make peace

I just want to, stay free



Gratitude, that’s my everyday attitude. Gratitude

Gratitude, that’s my everyday attitude. Gratitude
