Life Story

Some people

Seem to have all the luck

Or so we like to think

Making a success of life

Never kitchen sink

Whereas our life project

Sank without a trace

Hit the buffers

On our uppers

Days we cannot face


Disciples in the doldrums

Envy the chosen three

Jesus’ inner circle

Not frozen out like me

Jesus then reminds them

What truly makes us great

To be like a child again

At the starting gate


To be the least the little one

Is where our life begins

A helpless child a gift of love

Is the greatest of our claims

Don’t look for worldly glory

It shimmers and it fades

Be true to your own story

Child of God you’re made
