Seeds of Grace

The little acts that we do
for stranger, friend or foe
reveal who we are
to the world at large.

If from our hearts
we sow seeds of grace
the return on our investment
will never bring disgrace.

But how painful and sad
and horribly selfish are we
when we pick and choose
whom we celebrate or neglect.

We sing brilliantly and proudly
we are family and yet it is tradition
to minimize one or a select few
while we honor some beyond duty.

The little acts that we do
reveal who we are
to the ones close to us
and to the ones we ignore.

Wounded or neglected hearts
can be healed and redeemed
to rise above their grave
that you’ve been digging.

But do not be fooled or misguided
the seeds you sow today
will one day become a crop
that you will harvest.
