The promise

O Favored Ones,
the hope and grace
of a beloved life
is promised to each
and every one of us:
not just the strong,
the wise, or the rich,
but also to those who kneel
in grass or straw or sand
and beg for courage
to face another day,
to survive, or to escape,
to breathe, to walk,
or even just to see once more
the faces of those
whom we have left behind.
