I Thank God for My People

The true fortune of a man

are the friends who choose

to be with him

when they can be somewhere

else around.

People pay

the apt and agile

to get things done.

People pay

the brightest and freshest minds

for ideas, perspectives and beyond.

People pay

for the expertise

they lack.


“people need people.”

Who doesn’t need people?

And friends,

they’re simply people–

the best of them all.

To cut the sentimental,

middle-aged lady’s going

endless musing:

I thank God

for those generous souls

who opt to be my people.

I am humbled

to have you all.
