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
