Purple's Platitudes

nothing but words …

have you considered my servant

11 October 2013

have you considered my servant …


You may take away my eyesight,

but my vision will not perish


You may take away my worldly riches,

but I am still poor in spirit


You may steal all sense of family,

but I will still belong to all


You may paint my life with despair,

but I’ll still dream in color


You may stifle joy and happiness,

but I’ll learn to be content


You may clothe me with loneliness

but I shall never be alone


You may deprive me of fairy tales,

but nothing can separate me from Love


You may sway me to lose my faith

but some things will always remain


You may steal my very life in time

but I refuse to curse God and die
