How to Love the World: Save it or Savor it?

I rise in the morning torn between the desire
to save the world or to savor it. - to serve life or to enjoy it;
To savor the sweet taste of my own joy
Or to share the bitter cup of my neighbor;
To celebrate life with exuberant step
Or to struggle for the life of the heavy laden.
What am I to do when the guilt at my bounty
Clouds the sky of my vision;
When the glow which lights my every day
Illumines the hurting world around me?
To savor the world or to save it?
-Richard Gilbert

Save the world or savor it? Both.
-Jonalu Johnstone
