Minding My Tea

Tea Time
Time for Me
Me, let me Be
Be quiet, Be soothed
Soothed my mind
Mind my thoughts
Thoughts of all that went on Today
Today came and went
Went quickly when time I needed
Needed to be ready
Ready to do my thing
My thing I'm learning
Learning to provoke
Provoke thinking
Thinking we shared 
Shared, consented, dissented
Dissented about God
God didn't make the text sacred
Sacred we made the words
Words we speak
Speak to Me
Me and my tea
Cinnamon spice tea
Tea time, me time
Time to rest
rest my mind
Mind my tea.
