Best Poem of Alla Renee Bozarth

Passover Remembered

and your willingness to be free.

Don't wait for the bread to rise.

Only surrender to the need
of the time— to love
justice and walk humbly
with your God.

Do not take time to explain to the neighbors.
Tell only a few trusted friends and family members.

Then begin quickly,
before you have time to sink back ...
