Alms

Monks Luang Prabang public

Alms giving, Luang Prabang, Laos

Early morning, start of a new day
Piety and humility it seems
Begging and giving too much
For the sake of their spirits

Early morning, start of a new day
Abundance and wealth it seems
Ordering and taking the desired
For the sake of enjoyment

Early morning, start of a new day
Shortage and need it seems
Craving and praying for anything
For the sake of survival

Early morning, start of a new day
Real generosity it seems
Finding and providing necessities
For the sake of someone else
