day 138

He raises up the poor from
         the dust;
   he lifts the needy from the
         ash heap,
to make them sit with
         princes
   and inherit a seat of
         honor.  1 Samuel 2:8

in our rush
for more, we
         shove others out
         of the way, but
   you pick them up
   and dust them off;
we toss
         the broken hopes
         of friends in
         the bin, but
   you turn them
   into treasures for your
               heart;
we tell the servers
to stay in the kitchen
until the feast is over, but
   you bring them out
   and seat them at your
         right hand.
