Raymond A. Foss Poems

Right under his nose by Raymond A. Foss

Eating the crumbs of his excess
the beggar at the table
named and right under his nose
a fellow child of Abraham
a member of the family

A harsh judgment
against his life
when he appeared to be righteous
God looking deeper still
into the recess of our heart

We are to care for our neighbor
our brothers and sisters in life
those who are near, those far away
none of them truly strangers
valued children instead

God cared for us all
calling us to service
to reach out to those in need
to offer what we have
generous with the gifts
he pours out abundantly on us
