As you prepare your breakfast, think of others.
Don’t forget the food for the doves.
And, as you conduct your wars, think of others.
Don’t forget those who seek peace.
And, as you pay your water bill think of others,
Think of those who only have clouds to drink from.
And, as you return home, to your own home, think of others
Don’t forget the people of the tents.
And, as you sleep and count the planets, think of others,
For some have no room to sleep.
And, as you liberate yourself with metaphors, think of others,
Of those who have lost their right to speech.
And, as you think of the distant others, think of yourself,
And say, “I wish I were a candle in the darkness.”
