The Debt - Poem by Barry Middleton

what is the debt we owe
to thank the universe
for granting such a blessing
the beauty of this earth

not just an awesome view
but all earth does provide
to meet our every need
a garden and a guide

and when we fall from grace
know every man will sin
but if we can atone
then in the end we win

the debt is paid in full
when we are filled with love
and if we seek that path
they do take note above

when gratitude comes due
it's sure to show the way
with friends forever true
who will not back away

to what is up above
that gave us such a boon
that granted life on earth
we thank the stars and moon

Topic(s) of this poem: redemption, sin, thankfulness, universe
