Today

Sorrow, I see sorrow in this world

All alone, no one willing to sacrifice

No one to lift the weary or feed the hungry

No one to clothe the naked or guide the lost

Sorrow, I see so much sorrow in this world.

Pride, I see so much pride in this world

All the same, no one willing to sacrifice

No one to lift the weary or feed the hungry

No one to clothe the naked or guide the lost

Pride, I see so much pride in this world.

Love, I see shadows of love in this world

All ashamed, No one willing to sacrifice

No one to lift the weary or feed the hungry

No one to clothe the naked or guide the lost

Love, I see so many shadows of love in this world.

I wonder how much longer we can pretend

We were not set here to love each other

How much longer we can continue

Ignoring our neighbor begging for help

How much longer until we sit before the throne

Defending our ignorance and selfishness

How much longer until we finally see;

Our love was meant to save this world

Not hide in our homes

Too afraid to open our hearts to someone in need

Our sorrow was meant to heal this world

Not locked away

Too hurt to share with others who need an understanding ear

Our pride was meant to challenge this world

Not overcome it

Stand strong yet willing to give yourself completely.

Now are you prepared to face our maker?

Are you confident you have loved your neighbor?

Would you be happy with all that you have done?

Lift the weary, feed the hungry

Clothe the naked or guide the lost

No matter what you have already done,

Today take the time and do something greater!
