My Life As A Sheet Of Paper

Post  Irv Everett on Sat 17 Apr 2010, 5:52 pm

My Life As A Sheet Of Paper







I hold in my hand a notebook, I open it and tear out a page

And this sheet is my life; from beginning to my present stage



I claim to be a child of the King, and God wants all you see

So I brought this page to His altar; giving Him all of me



He says will you honor me with your tithe, I say I can’t this week

With that no came the noise; a small piece torn from the sheet



Will you honor your father and mother, or help a stranger on the street

And with that no came the noise; small pieces torn from the sheet



Will you sing in the choir, will you come and vacuum the stage

So many questions, so many denials; excuses, tatter my page



I hold in my hand a tattered paper, my life represented by this sheet

Or was my life the many pieces; that I tore and dropped in the street

What a great metaphor....very original and thought provoking. So many questions, so many denials and refusals. We are the sum of our parts, and every part is loved and cherished.
