Thank you


This was a song I loved as a younger woman, but I have to say I never heard it and really GOT it until a good decade later. She must have been way ahead of me. The lovely and profound lyrics are below the video.

Thank you.

“Thank You” (Alanis Morissette)

how bout getting off all these antibiotics
how bout stopping eating when I’m full up
how bout them transparent dangling carrots
how bout that ever elusive kudo

thank you india
thank you terror
thank you disillusionment
thank you frailty
thank you consequence
thank you thank you silence

how bout me not blaming you for everything
how bout me enjoying the moment for once
how bout how good it feels to finally forgive you
how bout grieving it all one at a time…

the moment I let go of it was the moment
I got more than I could handle
the moment I jumped off of it
was the moment I touched down

how bout no longer being masochistic
how bout remembering your divinity
how bout unabashedly bawling your eyes out
how bout not equating death with stopping

alanis-morissettePicthank you india
thank you providence
thank you disillusionment
thank you nothingness
thank you clarity
thank you thank you silence
