Up and Out

2020.07.16 Lilies rr

Life consists of those
Things we choose, both good and bad,
We, daily authors
Write our stories, willing hands,
Never knowing the endings.

Looking up to God
We recognize some purpose
More significant –
Than simple independence
Setting only personal goals.

A concern for those
Who enter our days and lives
Has us reaching out
To make an impact, a change,
Capable of causing good.

Our hearts reach out for
The benefit, comfort, aid of
Others who we help;
Our souls reach up to Heaven
To grasp our meaning, reason.

Up and out, cannot
Go wrong, we long for much more
Than in ourselves held,
Spirit unfolds such answers
Service feeds many a need.
