Poem: Gratitude List

Gratitude List
–Naomi Shihab Nye

Thank you for insulting me.

You helped me see how much I was worth.

Thank you for overlooking my humanity.

In that moment I gained power.

To be forgotten by the wider world

and the righteous religious

and the weaponized soldiers

is not the worst thing.

It gives you time to discover yourself.




Almonds roasted and salted.

Almonds raw.

Pistachios roasted and salted.
