Me and Them

An evening in summer
some crackers and cheese
I sit in the silence
and ponder with ease

I'm led to this insight
all this and the world
The pillar of truth
where the serpent is curled

Distracting obsessions
clothes-money-food
look out for your'self'
and be led by the mood

Discarded clothes
a half bag of sweets
Eat like a queen
from the bins and the streets

I see not from my eyes
but my heart yells free
that my life here-and now
can't be all about ME

We-over nourished
Too sluggish to care
While the duty stands clear
We all have 'their' share

Oh dare I escape
from this prison of wealth
The face I am here
should mean more than my 'self'

I have the resources
To help save another
We are all under God
and my neighbour-my brother

Yet all it amounts to
is a shameful unease
as my stomach is bloated
from too much cheese

But the truth remains strong
Though for now I ignore it
But something's stirred up
and I plan to explore it

For I'm in the boat
but the Lord's at the helm
and the strength of the wind's
made my heart overwhelm

Exitement and passion-
A joy for the truth
With JESUS-the answer
For we are the proof!
