Poem: Which Me are You?

OR You, Me and God We have a thing

 

You said you were hungry I saw you and I knew. Provide, my heart said, So I gave.

You, Me and God have a thing.

You said you were thirsty. I heard you. I know. My heart said give, so I gave.

You, Me and God have a thing.

You said you were a stranger. I could tell by a face I had never seen. My heart said, invite him in, so in he came.

You, Me and God have a thing.

You said, You needed clothes. I dared to look but look I did and I could tell. My heart said, Give of your bounty so I did.

You, Me and God have a thing.

News said, you were in prison. I heard, I know. Caring, I visited.

You, Me and God have a thing.

Only God knows my end.

 

You said you were hungry I saw you and I knew it. “So what” my heart said, So I went on.

You, Me and god have nothing.

You said you were thirsty. I heard you. I knew it. But my heart said “so what”, so I went on.

You, Me and god have nothing.

You said you were a stranger. I could tell by a face I had never seen. My heart said, “don’t invite him in”,  so I closed the door on him.

You, Me and god have nothing.

You said, You needed clothes. I dared to look but look I did and I could tell. My heart said, NO WAY”. So of my bounty I refused.

You, Me and god have nothing.

News said, you were in prison. I heard, I knew. Not Caring, I didn’t visit.

You, Me and god have nothing.

Only God knows my end.

If we live, we live to the Lord; and if we die, we die to the Lord. So, whether we live or die, we belong to the Lord.
