Hunger

Hunger

That hunger
Pushing, driving
Telling me
Something is wrong
So strong,

No matter how much
Of the world I ingest
Still somehow lingers
Distrust
Still I need,
Long for
At times I know now what

So, I continue
To eat from the world
Each of every day’s
Beginning & end
Searching, taking in

Until I say no more
I will buy no longer
From your unlimited store
Of meaningless things

Then I stand, still
And realize
That you lie
This world will
Never completely
Satisfy

Reach up
Search for God’s face
His unending grace
Only that love will
Fill up, supply
Those inner recesses
Now threatening to die
From a world’s wearying
Provision
Oh, Lord, 
Help me to make 
A better decision!
