I’m Ready

I’m ready. Want to come along? Settin’ out on a long trip to that place called Compassion.

Come along, to that place of passion with me. Leave all that intentionality.

Reroute from your nod and shoulder-shrug to a highway, no – a FREEway to tangible Love.

Complacency, have no place in me! Stop trying to invade my destiny.

You seep into the everyday. Like acid, slowly eat away at empathy and sacrifice,

God empty me of this crafty vice

That saps the oxygen from lungs, and soaks up light inside my eyes

Absorbs the voice inside my mouth and robs me of what love’s about

Til all I’m left with at the end of a day, The end of that year, the end of my life

Is me and my shallow thoughts of me, MY stuff, MY job, MY family

Compassion land is calling now and these seats are filling fast

Complacency, have no place in me; too many await me to act

I’m ready.

Want to come along?

I Don’t Need You – a poem about sufficiency apart from Jesus

I don’t need you

I got through my day without you, just fine

I don’t need you 

I work hard to bring home the money, in time

 

   Just let me float – on the breeze

   of this warm complacency

  Just let me float – on the breeze

   of this warm complacency

 

I don’t need you

I have all the comforts of a good life ~ the best

What is need is…

My media, medicine, family & friends; I’m blessed

 

This way of life I’ve grown accustomed to

Though I’m not sure I’ve grown at all

Surrounded by those who just agree with me

Though I’m not sure who I could call…should I fall

 

   Everything’s fine

Just let me float

   Everything’s good

On the breeze

   Everything is…

Of this warm

   Is as it should

Complacency
