NOT ME

What looks back

What wallows in pain, seeking more pain

What seeks to justify itself

What clings to the past

What feels entitled

What feels unworthy

What condemns

What doubts

What can be deceived

What worries about tomorrow

ME

What witnesses

What listens

What gives thanks

What is still

What is flowing

What is mindful in action

What walks in the paths of righteousness

What seeks meaning

What accepts

What waits on God
