"There Was No Honor In It"

It hurt today, Creator
Seeing that fake headdress
On a store shelf
On sale for $175

There was no honor
There was no community
There was no heritage
Just an item "for sale"

A souvenir
A "pretty thing"
A fashion trend
A commodity for profit

A cheap imitation
Devoid of meaning
Devoid of real honor
Devoid of love

Creator, it hurts
To see something sacred
Copied and cheapened
Priced to be sold

Maybe You know
Exactly how that feels
Your Son was also priced
Sold for thirty pieces of silver

Help us, Creator
To stop selling the sacred
To stop cheapening the sacred
Help us to know real honor

And to give it.
