our parents give us much
a home, food, money
values, cares, cultures
and as we become older
we carry these forward
to our own children
to our friends
to the world

but god gives us something else
he gives us the word
the capacity to speak
to convey the love in our hearts to others
to share our pain with others
to share an insight
to become one with another
beyond the boundaries of body and mind

the word is life, becoming more alive
the word is the silence of the universe, echoed
the word comes from god
and takes us back to him
