Driving through town,
Doors locked,
Late at night;
Protection or exclusion?
Is the intention to shut out the world
So it no longer exists?

Feeling safe,
In our own bubble,
In our nice, safe life;
Preservation or isolation?
Are we so wrapped up in our lives
That we give others short shrift?

Slow down, look around,
Ground yourself,
Make friends in the queue,
We are called to love,
Don’t sit on the shelf –
Involve yourself.
Go serve a meal, buy someone a drink,
Think, don’t drive on by.
