Come Follow Me— Mark 1:17

Come and follow,
Come, you say.
Not now, Lord,
not today.

Really Lord?
You want me?
Right now Lord?
How can that be?

Let me first
make a plan,
think it through,
You understand?

I’m not so sure
it’s for the best,
I’m not so sure
I’ll pass the test.

Lord, I think
it would be better,
just to wait.
I’ll follow later.

Better when the kids
are older.
Better when my faith
is bolder.

Right now’s not good,
not much to use.
Another time?
It’s what I’d choose.

Another time Lord,
another day,
Come and follow.
Come, You say.
