Greed’s face is a terrifying sight,
To those who hunger for life’s trinkets,
They live with a gaping hole,
Never satisfied and constantly lusting,
They live with the emptiness of being alone,
Desire a torturous hunger never satiated,
Having more and more but never knowing why?
I know the deep hunger that is this life’s curse,
But, I found the blessing that is God’s gift,
It came to me in my darkest hour,
What I forgot God reminded me,
My memory slowly restored,
Understanding giving freedom,
Words that sought belonging,
Received with Grace.
Blessing is now fully received,
Day after day my life connected to holiness,
Grace and flesh completely belonging to each other,
Everything given to Grace in loving acceptance,
My voice shouting daily praise.
