A Maizing Grace ( or a Kernel of Truth)

One problem with this narrower vision,
with keeping our focus tight:
we might become obsessed
with all our differences,
with being purple,
when all the rest are red,
with the illusion we're keeping our heads
when all about us are losing theirs.

When we step back from self,
it forces us to learn we're not alone
or even necessarily unique;
that other ears exist
where white, red, yellow or purple
is the norm.

Know that you are worthy,
and be glad,
but stay aware:
the purpose of all us kernels
is to bless something larger than ourselves.
