Humaning Together

I don’t deserve what I have
any more than
the desperate refugee
deserves to flee for his life
or the starving child
deserves to go hungry.

Yet, I know them by heart.

As the mother
with hungry children
gives them what little
there is, and her portion, too.

As the one
without a home
seeks companionship,
respite and a way home.

I, with a home,
a kind word, a drink of water,
to offer in shelter
to the one who needs sanctuary.

I, with life’s bread,
to offer in sustenance
to the one who is hungry
and the one who is going without.

This is my nature, too.
Doing human.
together.
