I am only lost for words
When I have nothing to say
But rarely am I speechless
Because words are the voice of my soul.
I am only alone
When I have no companion
But rarely am I lonely
Because friends are all around.
I am only homeless
When I have nowhere to rest my head
But rarely am I without a place to stay
Because wherever I lay my hat, that is my home.
I am only ignorant
When I do not know
But rarely am I without knowledge
Because I follow the path of righteous learning.
I am only found wanting
When I have genuine need
But rarely am I the beggar
Because my need is purely relative.
I am only forlorn
When I have no hope
But rarely am I hopeless
Because I have spirit and faith from within
I am only blind
When I cannot see
But rarely am I without vision
Because the light of life is gifted to me.
