I Am The Problem

Lord, I'm tired.

I am tired of wasting my time
making selfish choices
wallowing in resentment
judging people I don't know
considering myself better than people I love.

I am tired of looking the other way
hardening my heart
ignoring the Truth
neglecting the least
protecting myself.

I am tired of demanding to be right
fighting to get my way
forgetting to listen first
working for what does not matter
chasing what will not satisfy.

I am tired of being dead inside 
breathing desert air
when all the while you sit beside me and offer living water.

“Dear Sir: Regarding your article 'What's Wrong with the World?' I am. Yours truly,”
