All We Really Need

Why

 


Psalm 77:3

I think of God, and I moan, overwhelmed with longing for his help.


Why

Why do we argue?
Why do we fight?
Why do we struggle
To prove ourselves right?

Why are we lonely?
Why are we sad?
Why are we trying
To prove ourselves mad?

Why will we insult?
Why will we protest?
Why will we chastise
To prove ourselves the best?

Why should we damage?
Why should we spurn?
Why should we ridicule
To prove ourselves unconcerned?

Why don’t we listen?
Why don’t we learn?
And prove that it’s for love
That we all really yearn.

Father,

Please be with each of us and change our hearts and minds to be guide by love and not pride. We are lonely and sick, yet think ourselves in control.
