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;
Be fresh and refreshing!
