Poverty — poor, spirit restless,

This is me without the Lord.

Questioning — probing, lonely, unfree,

This is me fighting as I find the Lord.

Sad— depressed, running—escaping,

This is me rejecting me,  rejecting the Lord.

Joy — contentment, serenity —peace,

This is me in accepting me, accepting the Lord.

Relating — dialoguing, conversing, loving,

This is the Lord and me together, Oh thanks!

Dying — rising, growth — healing,

This is me coming into wholeness,  Thanks Lord!
