Everyone Wants To Belong - Poem by Daleen Enslinstrydom

Everybody wants to have a home,
a place where they do belong,
a space to be themselves
where the life-masks that they wear
can be taken off.

Everybody wants a bed
where their bodies can come to rest,
where they can go to faraway dreams
and wish that dreams become reality,
in a haven, a soul's resting place.

Everybody wants to believe
that they have a path of righteousness,
a road to travel on, a destiny to pursue,
to find themselves

but all roads do come to an end,
my soul does cry out to be comforted
when that hour is near.

Everybody wants a beautiful garden
where flowers do always bloom,
even I do wish for that kind of tranquillity to stay;
and in everything a kind of bliss that overflows,
in everything that I do.

Lord, I do pray that You will answer me
in all of the prayers that I raise to You everyday.
Lord, help my soul to rest.

Everybody wants to belong to somebody
that will accept them just as they are
in the presence of the Lord.
