compelled

I feel compelled
not because I can say this
but because I must

stagnation and degradation
within the church
Americanized doctrine of “self”

to me first
if I have change
then and only then will I pay to see change in another

it is only that I can feel
to see how I feel
for giving to one less fortunate than myself

pass on my fortune
and knowledge of life’s appeals
showing that money helps but I just don’t have the time

the time to share my life and let you in
show you, I am too, confused
but blessed all the same

not knowing it is you
to help me see more clearly
the fullness of God’s grace

your joy
so simple, yet shows
is what it seems I really need to know

for in simplicity we fully see
no longer cluttered mind
thingswe buy no longer ruling our lives

thus no longer paralyzed
by the times
always changing, passing by

no longer playing “catch up”
but living life
helping breathe life back into lives of those societies despise

compelled
