Is not a motivation for gratitude.
The kids who can’t get enough food.
The ill who can’t buy treatment.
The people in cages
Those without a means of survival.
Should not be the source of my gratitude.
Not on their necks.
I am angry that I’m granted these things
Arbitrarily, when so many are denied.
The fact that division is used for dehumanizing,
Fuels my actions for change.
I will save my gratitude
For my friends, and my talents.
