Like a tree planted by streams of water

Barefoot boy with the tired eyes
Like two nuns at the disco,
What’s that pile of papers stuffed under your arm
Like popcorn in dentures?

this is faith hope love

the beginning and the end
it is my treasure 

Relax, I’m not going to take it from you
Like a broken vending machine.
I just was curious, that’s all–
Like a two-year-old and a kitten.

i would gladly share
even though i love it so
you need to read it

What could be so important
Like the vote on election day
That I would need to read it
Like a suspect’s Miranda rights?

it causes changes
whatever i must give up
Jesus is worth it
