A Test of Suitability

walk on the cement
to the booth of wares
but tread soft on the grass

take note of the living around you
the song in every heart
the hope in every bloom

don’t turn
your back
on this

walking through
the gate of heart’s hope
what trials will await you then

when hope will return
and softly lift your heart
for your kindness

don’t turn back

walking through
the gate of mercy’s surprise
what trials will await you then

when surprise will return
and you will be repaid
for your mercy
