REFLECTION FOR CHRISTMAS
I have only a beckoning star to follow
Pitch your tent with mine
So that I may not become deterred
By hardship, strangeness, doubt
Show me the movement I must make
Toward a wealth not dependent on possessions;
Toward a wisdom not based on books;
Toward a strength not bolstered by might;
Toward a God not confined to heaven;
But scandalously earthed, poor, unrecognised.
Help me find myself as I walk in others shoes.
