Make ME a Sandwich🍔

(c) Google Images


I need me some sandwich;

Slices of some sweet smelling toast;

Stuffed with fresh vegetables;

And some good protein too;

What’s a sandwich

Without its rich filling?

As much as it may pass for a snack;

It is satisfying and well-balanced too;

Carbs, protein and vitamins;

All present in each bite;

Tasty and healthy;


As a sandwich can only be good;

As the quality of ingredients assembled;

Have you thought for a minute;

What kind of a sandwich you are?

Our environment adds to or subtract from;

What we are and can be;

What value are your friends adding to you?

Are you better or worse off;

By what you’ve been exposed to so far?


Are you a fresh delight;

Or stale to have around?

Evaluate everyone who comes into your life to stay; 

And find out what kind of sandwich;

They are making you to be;

Are they keeping you balanced;

Focused and eager to be better?

Or are they filling you up with junk of negativity;

Which stinks up easily?


On the flip side,

Help make the people around you;

The best version of themselves;

Be supportive and honest with them;

Help make them the best sandwiches they can be;


If you’re going to have a sandwich today;

Take a moment and savor it;

And reflect on this muse as well.

Enjoy your sandwich moment;

And remember,

Be fresh and refreshing!

  2. I’ve been hearing a lot lately about relationships and how people affect you. I think it’s God speaking to me to evaluate who is in my life and why. This was an interesting perspective and analogy. Thank you for sharing and willing to be His voice!
