What would you have me to do, Father

It’s your will and not mine

What is your reason for birthing me

To be helpful, to be the kind


Of person others can confide in

To lend a listening ear

Someone others can rely on

When depression is near


Them day and night

Tormenting their mind and soul

Am I to share what you did for me

How you cleansed and made me whole


Inside and outward

As you refined me with fire

Making your desires my desires

Burning off all that inspires


Me to do wrong in this life

Following every lascivious wind

Looking for love in all the wrong places

When I should have been


looking within my own spirit

To ensure it was connected to you

For within my spirit you’ve

Already decided what I was born to do


In this world

My purpose and my place

I will do your will Father,

Till we meet face to face


Thank you for reading and following
