If I Could be more...


If I Could be more
Than what I am
If I Could be better
Than what I might become
Than maybe I Could be
Like the Great I Am
A God, A God, A God

Grasping tightly to brush, fingers
Dipping feathered ends into can
Slowly stroke the canvas of life
Colors and shapes and lines
Reimange the world
Hands paint pictures on grains of rice
I said, hands paint pictures on grains of rice.

Taking a stand and refusing to simply
Allow words to pepper speech
With meaningless nouns of repentance
Tongue takes action, driving verbs and reverbs
Past clinched teeth, until until
Lips tell the story in a single sentence
In a single sentence.

If I Could be more
Than what I am
If I Could be better
Than what I might become
Than maybe I Could be
Like the Great I Am
A God, A God, A God

If hands could design structures with just a spec of mud,
If fingers could Write a song using a single note,
If heart had enough compassion to
feed millions of hungry with a loaf of bread and fish,
prevent the trafficing of women and men,
eliminate terrorism and racism from consciousness
Remove the gap that exists between the rich and poor.

If I Could be more
Than what I am
If I Could be better
Than what I might become
Than maybe I Could be
Like the Great I Am
A God, A God, A God
