Reconciliation At Dayís End



Today I consumed but did I sew

What actions did I provide the world

In exchange for what others grew

What have I forgiven that I be shriven 


What roads have I traversed 

Whose pedestrians I ignored 

Whose needs were left unnursed 

What have I provided that I be sated


What have I achieved this day

That marks me a Samaritan 

What wounds did I not assuage  

What have I done that I wish undone

Ooh, very St Francis Prayer meets Matthew 25. I cherish the tenor of this poem, and the words and cadence suit the theme admirably.
