Blessed

We are the culture to one-up each other.

We are blessed, let us rest.

This poem came about from the observation (after a week of listening to the news) that we seem to be only willing to point a finger outward, while completely unwilling to look inward. Increasingly we see, hear, and feel the effects of an ever expanding economy. This agenda doesn’t care for the human spirit. I see these effects in my thoughts of comparing and judging, and putting down in a desperate effort to lift myself up. Beauty is found everywhere with an open mind.

  1. This is beautiful. And a very accurate and profound statement about our culture.

    1. Wow. Thank you! I would’ve liked to have let the poem stand on it’s own, but I couldn’t resist adding a bit of context.
