I DO

My body is a temple for the Lord’s in-dwelling

And an instrument of his revealing.
How dare I challenge His plan but, I do.
 

Having any amount of perceived power

Does not authorize me to use it as I will
Yet, I do.
 

Like a child lacking knowledge, wisdom and understanding

I swing at, I stab at, until my own blood I spill in awe!

With that negligible modicum of power I choose
To not listen, because the messenger is too quiet or loud,
Too young or old, white, black, brown, green or yellow;
Too rich or poor, male or female, masculine or a-feminine.

I choose, You choose, We choose to know but deny;
I dare say, that we are powerful enough to choose
To fear enlightenment
And hold fast to ignorance.
 

My body is a temple for the Lord’s in-dwelling
And an instrument of his revealing.
How dare I challenge His plan but
 
I DO.
