i've always done the right thing
for the wrong reason ...
i've always been drawn to the hopeless, the down and out, the broken ...
not to give them hope or to pick them up or heal them
but because they made me feel a little less insignificant ...
i've never cared about money
not because i didn't want money
but because i felt like i wasn't worth anything ...
i've never felt like anything was mine
not because everything is God's
but because i didn't want to be one of them ...
i've always wanted to do the honorable thing
not out of love
but out of fear ...
just another dysfunctional saint
trudging through the desert
