Something to Give

i have nothing to give that wasn’t received
but i’m willing to give this a shot
i’ll try my hand at some creativity
better now than not

i start my days with open eyes
and sometimes i close them to pray
i forget to think on truth sometimes
and i hope that it’s okay

i have high hopes and ideal dreams
that will break my heart, i’m sure
it seems to be a recurring theme
that most things I want aren’t pure

there are days i want to crawl up straight
next to the heart of Good
and listen to the way it beats
and learn to love the way I should

each day is just a passerby
in this breath of life i live
one thing i want before I die
is to have something to give
