Contrast?

child at Communion

A child to the altar
comes,
with boldly outstretched hands,
trusting
to partake of the Bread of Life.

child at border

A child to the border
comes,
having fled a violent land,
with shyly clenched hands,
aching
to taste of liberty from strife.

Their hunger is the same.
