Poem: Poor Choice


Luke 6:20 Looking up at His disciples, Jesus said: “Blessed are you who are poor, for yours is the kingdom of God.

Who in this world
Would choose to be poor
When glory and power
Grace those who have more?

What is the prize
Worth such esteem
That we’d forsake
What others dream?

Surely a cross
Is not worth all that
Thorny crowns seem
A mad hatter’s hat

Unless there’s a joy
That this world knows not
Identity gained
Through being hard-bought

Purchased by blood
To be Christ’s true Bride
Growing complete
As we’re healed inside

To be our true self
And love others true
Is wealth far beyond
What this world pursue
