We Could Have it All

We could have it all
If we’d let it go

What we keep
We lose
What we give away
We keep

The one that holds
Too tightly
To his rights
Forgets
God rules

Who withholds
More than is right
Poverty invites

The Father in Heaven
Withheld nothing from us
Not even His Beloved Son

If you hear His voice
Don’t harden your heart
The Father loves the Son
And Jesus said to all of us
I and the Father are one

About Carol Ann Hoel

The new me - Carol Ann. More suitably said, the old me in new circumstances of life. Again. My history has developed in parts and chapters. In person, I am Wife, Mom, Grandma, Author, and Writer, in that order, more or less. Life is good because God is good.

    Beautiful poem. In heaven, the last here on earth will be the first and the one with the least will have the most. The greatest will be the one who was the servant to the most.
