A KERNEL

Drenched in appreciation

Thankful for a single breath

Taking nothing for granted

Not a single grain of teff


For even a single grain

Can nourish so much pain

Or can knock one off their feet

With its sweetness so complete


But all the complication

And dissertations 

Will be met with no elation

For simplicity wins the heart


Look not at what you see

Your eyes have been deceived

For the whole beauty of the world 

Can be contained in a single kernel
