Does it help?

Does it help to know

that someone

is always worse off

than me?

 

Does it lift my gaze

from navel

to the wider world

outside?

 

Does it sweep my soul

and wash me,

reset my focus

upward?

 

Does it capture my thoughts

to petition

with true thankfulness

my God?

 

It should!
