Go Ahead And Break Bread



Ahead of the starkness
is a soft bouquet
Ahead of the darkness
is a brilliant day
Go ahead and break bread

Ahead of the madness
is a better good
Ahead of the badness
is a tender mood
Go ahead and break bread

Ahead of the boldness
is a docile move
Ahead of the coldness
is a fiery grove
Go ahead and break bread

Ahead of the weakness
is a sturdy might
Ahead of the bleakness
is a glowing light
Go ahead and break bread

Ahead of the daftness
is a cogent mind
Ahead of the haftness
is a complete find
Go ahead and break bread
