The Dish of Comfort

Comfort through service

There is comfort in the abyss

There is duty in the light

Treetops shield the world from sunshine

And darkness weeps for the world it knows


Comfort is a pillow in the middle

Two heads claim it as their own

Locked in the eternal battle

Both wanting it for their own


Cozy is cooking for another

The kitchen of burdens awaits

The garden of truth ripens fruit

So, use it on your plate


Season the dish with herbs of joy

and garnish it with hope

For comfort comes to those in service

And alludes those who seek for self
