want

Posted: June 4, 2013 in Uncategorized

we all want to be special
but also to fit in somewhere
some bodies more somewheres than others

we all want to be loved
but some can’t believe it’s true
no matter how much it is shown

we all want to be good at something
it plays out too often as “better than someone”
we get desperate when we feel we are not

we all want to mattter
but some of us would rather not be seen
by the baleful glaring eye of John Q. Public

we are all made in the image
of the only One who knows
how special, how loved, how good we are…how much we matter

He sings over us
He tells us we shall not want
He woos us

still,

most often,

we choose want
