The Greater

I want attention
The world to see
How great I am
Is about me

Here is an offer
Another way
Of losing yourself
To practice this day

Ascend to the mountains
A view of beauty
Look at the stars
Gaze at the sea

Closing your eyes
And turn to above
A simple prayer
In infinite love

Gifts of receiving
A blessing divine
In losing ourselves
The greater, we find

  1. Great reflection. We, in the public spaces, are always challenged by our motivations, interior and exterior. Praying, preaching and witnessing, proclaiming and teaching are not exclusive actions. Each contained in the other. Your poem reflects Stephen of today’s reading. He certainly contained all of these.

    Well done.
