Gratitude

Image

thank God for jealousy

for yearning love

 —-

for loving silences, sharp knives

for nights of fire and punished crimes

 —-

thank God for sleeplessness

for the daily grind

 —-

for rat races, repetitive blame

for wide-ruled lines and waiting for rain

—-

thank God for open wounds

for unhealed scars

 —-

for pink-rimmed eyes, pinched nerves

for lessons hard learned and prayers that went unheard
