Lesson in Gratitude

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “xp.” Use it as a word, or find a word with “xp”in it. As always, use any way you’d like. Enjoy!


I could experience euphoria
At the simple spotting of the sun
Instead I express my dissatisfaction
At the state of my life
Expropriating happiness from others
Lost beneath my selfish blinders
How do I expire this pity monster
That seems to have taken residence?
Multiplying exponentially within me
To my complete mortification
That I could migrate from inexpungible
To an erased bad memory
For explaining reason for my woes
When in fact there were none valid
To exploit our friendship to destruction
Nor rob you of your joy
An expensive lesson
In focusing on my gratitude
