DIGNITY

by Aubry Rose

Dignity (n.): The quality or condition of being esteemed or honored; Inherent nobility and worth; Poise and self-respect.

Dignity.

Or is it
A characteristic so often forgotten.
Abandoned and ignored in a climactic moment of power.
What good people have, not evil.
What useful people have, not useless.

Dignity.

I lament for Your people, O Lord! Give us the eyes to see the truth, the beauty, the goodness bestowed upon each one of Your creatures. Give us the grace to be unconditional in our care for the earth and all who possess it. Allow others to experience Your love through us.

Let us be nothing and You be everything.
