When We Rightly See

We are guests at life’s feast    
each of us as good    
as the dirt beneath      
our sister’s feet    
     
For who will be proud      
shall taste defeat      
her branches extending      
with little reach    
and at life’s table      
find little to eat    
     
But when the heart      
in fullness blooms    
and Truth we rightly see    
for surely the eyes    
are wont to deceive      
     
The haughty cup of pride    
swallowed by humility      
in victory      
we’ll raise together      
each at her seat      
one family regaling
in this mystical feast
