Not Every Vessel

The next time you proclaim yourself to be a vessel,
remember:
Not every vessel is a chalice;
Some are just paper cups.
Some are just plastic bags,
used to hold goldfish at a carnival.
Some are garbage cans,
Holding onto the trash of others.
Some are a cardboard box,
and while some folks can live in one
even those wear out after a while.
