‘Thank you. For knocking me down’

December 2020
Here’s an excerpt from “Thank You” by teen Sudhigna Lingareddy:
So, thank you.
For knocking me down,
So I could learn to pick myself up.
For leaving me lost,
So I could learn to find my way.

Even though it wasn’t intentional,
It made a difference.
For this, I have to say...
From the bottom of my heart,
Thank you.
