Remind Me Again

All week we let words travel through our mind

when memory’s cadence might help remind

us to recognize together again

the bounty of peace, just how life began.

Help us to recall we were not the first

‘people’ to inherit the world we thirst

upon with every ounce of jealous need.

Allow the truth to safely now impede

our celebrations, feasts of gluttony

while only steps away cry agony.

Lest we forget the ‘others’ that suffer.

In today’s heartfelt warm embrace together

give pause to help restore spirits doubtful,

menus of love – delicious, delightful.
