If – a poem by Florence Mary

If  – Poem written by Florence Mary in March of 1993

 

If I am Beautiful, It is only to please God.

If I am ugly, It is only so I will seek the beauty of my soul within.

If I am poor, It is only so I will be unfettered by worldly concerns, able to do Gods work.

If I am lost, It is only so I will seek shelter in God.

If I am homeless, It is only to remind the world God requires it to give.

If I am rich, It is only because God requires much of me. I must spend my wealth doing His work.

If I die, It is only because God needs me at home.

March 93/Florence Mary
