If I had known
When I decided to wear a kippah
That some Jews who see me in public
Feel hesitant and might avoid conversation
Quickly turn their face 180 even though there is nothing there to look at
Or that, by debating with Arabs in public arenas
That Jews would pretend not to see me
But would talk to me the next day
I would still have done it
For there is nothing better in life and no better richness
Than to tap into your identity
Like a watery reservoir beneath the earth
And to live as you were created
