Thought

Vultures, hyenas and wild dogs

Fight over rotting carcass flesh

For species dining order known

Their reservations are not shown


Humankind rends tooth and nail

To claim a land their fathers knew

Each prepared to maim and kill

In name of god their blood to spill


But He who sits on regal throne

Knows the universe as His own

No need to fight and anger vent

When we are only paying rent


Harassed bird holds piece of bread

Letting go, has peace instead

Not jot or whisker child or home

Can we ever claim our own


Prayer

O Lord, my five seconds on earth seem so precious to me, but my profit/actor ego makes me cruel, selfish and unfeeling. Let me let go, knowing it all belongs only to Thee.
