Right here in this place

I persevered own my grace

Journey long tumultuous painful

End result apparently gainful


Why alive what are we here for

How do we make our days count more

On this earth beyond accumulation

Can we find lasting elation


Things have value they do call

Not meeting needs leads to a fall

Take care of business free your mind

Contemplate what you long to find


Inner journey what life’s about

Revealing the power of your shout

External experience provides context

Don’t fool yourself caught in excess


How to shape what you might do

Ask your heart it will tell you

No giving in to doubt or fear

Honor grace salvation near


What context does the voice of your heart provide?

How often do you listen?

What calls your attention?
