We Are All Beggars


Some beggars maybe begging for morsels
Or coins
On a filthy street
Or on a city square

But we are all beggars
Begging day to day
For our body or spirit
Sustenance

Some are begging for power
Some are begging for fame
Some are begging for attention
Some are begging to be cared.

We are all beggars
Some are begging for their voices to be heard
Some are begging for their hearts to be healed
Some are begging for their tears to be seen

We are all beggars
Needing others
To provide us with something else
We all are begging for love
We all are begging for respect

We are all beggars

AT last she comes, O never more
In this dear patience of my pain
To leave me lonely as before,
Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
