Thought

Without love we are empty shells

That fail to take the time hear

When listening to a tale of war

For fear of missing cricket score


Without love we are empty shells

When our eyes turn from refugees

And beatings cruel so far away

Because at home we’re still okay


Without love we are empty shells

When deep sorrows raise alarms

When we don’t offer bread or tea

To those who might go hungry


Without love we are empty shells

When we criticize with hurtful words

Insensitive to wounds that inflict

Because we’re better and more strict


Without love we are empty shells

When we fail to shed a loving tear

When our hearts turn stony cold

While others are in slavery sold


If God is love and God is all

Can we stand aloof and be so tall?

Can’t we hang on to His every word?

Listening with love to what is heard


Should not our hearts be fully bled?

When we see that He has not been fed

When He stands in pain in body mind

Can’t we offer our solace and be kind?


Prayer

O Lord open up my closed heart so that there is not one grain of selfishness. Reduce my ego to ashes and make my heart an open channel for Thy Love and Grace.
