Poem: Expanding Our Circle

An excellent poem by Mark Tulin on expanding our circle of caring.

Crow On The Wire

Celebrating the noble
is shortsighted.
Honoring the privileged
may do us more harm than not.
The spiritually enlightened
perhaps are phantoms
who are not worthy
of our reverence or trust.

Loving our family, friends, and culture
is not a bad idea.
But isn’t there beauty in everyone.
Shouldn’t we give our hearts
to people who are hungry
and venture outside our inner circle.

There is a richness
in the lives of the neglected.
Admiration
for those who are outcast.
The disenfranchised
need a helping hand, too.
Not just the righteous and the good.
