Known by Love

We are not well;
yet no doctor needed.
We are sick,
but do not need to bed.

We ignore the inner
forget our strength.
We lack trust and
our ability to live.

We have mercy;
we sacrifice;
we are not righteous, yet
we are not sinners!

We reform,
we repent,
we refresh our souls,
and search for what God has given . . .
