For Granted


For Granted

Caught up in self importance
I fail to see the billion suns in the midnight sky
in my narrow field of concern and sorrow
I fail to feel the warmth of the breeze on my skin
who is this robber of vision and sensation
where are the flames of wisdom and gratitude
to melt the cell bars
