Name just one of them


Is it wrong, my Lord

To be alone and suffer?

Some say we must not

Dwell upon our limitations

Whether real or temperamental,

But be ever conscious

Of our less fortunate brothers!

 

Then, why have you created me

Such an individual person?

Can I not serve in solitude

By accepting such dispositions

As were bestowed on me

By life and birth?

 

Who has a monopoly on these decisions?

I’m fed up of the goading moraliser

Shouting at me to become involved.

Can I not be as much part

Of Your Great Plan

In my own room?

 

May I not offer

The time of your creation,

A legitimate sacrifice,

To spend in silence?

Or if not, then let me ask these politicians,

Out of compassion for the starving millions—

To name just one of them for me!
