Edward Iacona

There's a little tradition on Thanksgiving

In which the family and each guest

Takes a turn before the dinner

To tell how their lives are blessed.

Each person speaks of gratitude

Within their minds reflection

As she listens and waits what does she think

In her personal introspection.

Does she give thought to her family

Once united, happy and strong.

Or a single thought to her husband

And how she did them wrong.

Details here are unimportant,

As our hurt remains inside.

Does she have any accountability

To consider how she lied.

If there's a mental inquisition

If recent past comes to her mind's door...

My question ends with a preposition

What could she be thankful for?

Author's Notes/Comments: 

Her "new life" says be grateful.... I think there is some irony in this....
