At the end of the day

What have you done for others

How much time did I spend reading lies

Did I argue with God

 

Was I annoyed by a stranger

That made me swear under your breath

Or repulsed by a beggar

Poorly clothed and unkempt

 

Did I precede my meals by giving thanks

Believing each morsel a gift

Or did I waste the abundance

Given so freely

 

Have I considered the ethics of my spending

Trying not to bolster those who hate

Was charity even a word

That happened to cross my mind today

 

Will I be able to live with myself

In light of the choices I've made today

If tomorrow was erased forever

Would I be confident on Judgement day

 

What did I not do today

Perhaps we’ll all get another chance

To make up for my mistakes

But before bed tonight I’m going to repent

Just to be safe.

Me
