I WANT

I WANT

John Rodgers

We all have needs and strong desire, Our natures such this is our drive

This quest of ours will take us higher, Or maybe just keep us alive

 

It seems the thirst can not be quenched, Our needs once met produce two more

We strain and toil till sweat has drenched, Though rich and full we still feel poor

 

The ceaseless call to gather more ,Constructs the chains that seem to bind

Our prison cell immortal chore, Offers no relief of mind

 

At times we dream of freedoms feel, To want no more and be content

Some how though it does not seem real, To end the task so Heaven sent

 

The inner push to grow and change, Has caused us to create this space

Desire has led us to arrange, All particle that’s in this place

 

It seems to keen observant eye, This dance may have been by design

Our world and all that pass us by, Could not have been prepared so fine

 

As we observe both then and now, By chance to gaze at what is to be

The truth of being is just how, This is the world we’re meant to see

 

The Point from all desires birth, The source of want and its supply

Has laid this plan and gird its worth, Ensured creation does not die

 

The Grand I AM has set this motion, As intent to know all that is

Experiencing both land and ocean, Enjoying mine and yours as His

 

Without desire we have no creation, Wanting has been good for all

Each life, and land and spacious nation, Are here as answers to our call

 

Our wanting may at times confuse, Driving peace just out of reach

Realizing we’ve been made to use, As tools for God, whose lessons teach

 

Desire’s such choice yields creation, There would be no here without this song

I AM expands without cessation , Confirming want cannot be wrong.
