Two Worlds 3-15-09


Entangled in earthly possessions -
the world of the physical,
or free, like a bird, that's flying high -
the world of the spiritual.

I once had lived in the earthly world
of personal toil and grind;
but now I live in a different realm -
a world with peace of mind.

A world that I could never earn,
a world I'll never leave,
a world where others can live too,
if only they'd believe.

I could never leave God's world,
and return to a life of sin -
for I've lived in both these worlds
and chose the one I'm in.

Yes, there are two separate worlds.
We can only live in one.
We either build a life for us
or live for God's own Son.

Though I can reach back there to some,
I cannot pull them here.
I cannot pray them here to me,
or bend their lone deaf ear.

We alone have made the choice
in which world we are living -
and if we haven't seen God's world
we don't know what we're missing....
