Losing One's Life

On that day, let the one who is on the housetop, with his goods in the house, not come down to take them away, and likewise let the one who is in the field not turn back. Remember Lot's wife. Whoever seeks to preserve his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life will keep it. I tell you, in that night there will be two in one bed. One will be taken and the other left. There will be two women grinding together. One will be taken and the other left.” Luke 17:31-35

Losing One's Life

I would offer myself
without a thought
without fear or misgiving
I would take the bullet
shield your body
without a worry
I would offer my life.

You offer love
without worry or fear
without counting consequence
or loss of status
without a thought
for yourself
you offer your love
for life for me.

Love hides not
doesn't hoard or clutter
love give all away
without a thought
and more love grows
life abundant
without a thought
without preparation
only offering oneself
