You owe God
Your everything,
Your inner world,
Your entire being.

You owe the warmth of the Sun
Your upturned face,
Its grace
In times of distress
Giving you solace.

You owe your family
Love and consideration,

You owe friends
Hugs and a listening ear
Whenever they want one.

You owe strangers
Courtesy and kindness-
You don’t know their struggles.

You owe the entitled ones
The empty space between words,
And the silence that follows
A silly question.
