Let’s not waste our life

On petty and trivial things;

As to focus on this mindset

Much stress and pain this brings.

Let’s look at the bigger picture

And as to why we all exist…

And what our purpose is on earth

And as to how the truth we’ve missed.

Let’s search deeper in our soul to find

The void that we’ve ignored;

The need for God’s unconditional love

And our need of Him as Lord.

Many times we search in places

Where we simply cannot find,

The answers which we really need

Since we choose to remain blind.

But once we do discover

God’s forgiveness and His grace;

The true riches and abundant wealth

Will be reflected on our face.

Since the love that emanates from God

Can never be replaced,

And when He finally fills the void

This joy we will embrace.

And God’s love can then be shared

To fulfil the Royal Law well;

To love God with our heart and soul

And our neighbour as ourselves.
