Steel Cable, Wooden PoleEven with age,
I am still surprised
that so few delight
at the sight of me.
Was I not made to be loved,
not just by you, Lord,
but by everyone around me?
How is it that others are
so self-centered? So selfish?
And why am I,
who was made
to love you and them,
so much like them and
so little like you?
