Owe.

owe_1_original

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.
