here in the time before dawn

I see the morning star

that shines so bright from afar

I try not to get diverted

 by all the sales on cyber Monday 

and remember what’s important 

and who we really are 

and when all the pings of bad news

start to bring me down 

I turn the presence within

and get back to the peace

 that redeems me again 

And see there is a choice we make

with every breath we take

That help to create our own fate

by what we focus on each day

and I realize while I’m here

it’s important to put to work 

the teachings that overcome hate and fear

and walk the talk and reject what’s not

and be grateful to God

for any light and love that appears
