A Birth Right

It’s time I read a book again

Time to read a book

Let somebody talk to me

Get some other look

Get to see a wider world

See the feelings there

Time to go outside again

Time for some fresh air


I’m lucky in my family

Parents siblings dog

Aunts and uncles cousins

Open up a blog

In my loss I’m not alone

Family around

But what about the lonely ones

The world with them abounds


That’s why the great commandment

Urges us to love

Some people don’t have family

Or anyone to love

Or be loved by if truth be told

Left all on their own

It’s vital that we love be bold

And make this world our own
