Last Bite


I give my dog the last bite
my child the bigger piece of cake
money to people begging on the street
yet harbor anger and resentment
for something that happened
a long time ago.

Good deeds will
not buy serenity
for this we need
forgiveness and gratitude.

Let go of that which
blocks the Light
forgive others as
God forgives you.

Be grateful
for the many blessings
He gives us every day
that you may live in peace
and harmony with those
along the way.
