day 35

"But you are not to be called rabbi, for you have one teacher, and you are all students."  Matthew 23:8

we could put
more letters after
         our names,
   or teach a
   child to read;
we could build
a wall to hold our
         awards and diplomas,
   or construct a
   bridge of hope;
we could sew
bars on our
         robes,
   or set free
   the oppressed;
we could read
         more books,
   or open our hearts
   to you.
