People like us need people like you

I’ve been mulling over an encounter I had with someone who said about my faith: ‘you know what, people like us need people like you.’ 

Here’s a poem that I wrote as part of this reflection: 

People like us

People like us need people like you,

People like you need to know,

What you’ve got is simply good, it’s refined true,

In a puzzling fuzzy kind of world humbly go,

Clumsily armed with the treasure, armfuls, dropping, falling down

People like us need people like you, 

People like you, get your head round this,

It’s life, where graves are dug ready to swallow new,

Powerful doesn’t even come close, it’s a billion mile miss,

You carry the one who shouts like a thousand stormy seas, ‘I make all things new.’
People like us need people like you,

People like you, please grasp this right,

What you have is fresh, mint purposeful, it’s kerching, it’s renew,

Happiness Swiss roled with the jam of joy from a great height,

You are good news, let your mind catch up with this humble fact, that people like us, need people like you.   If you would like to read more poems I have a book of 30 of them available from Gilead Books by following this link:  http://www.gileadbookspublishing.com/questioned-christian-30-poems.html#.VQnlzIiQGrU
