We have full
circle round us creeds
that urge for selfless deeds
of hoops to jump, appeasement works
to do on earth to show our worth.
But I from birth am full of self
too crippled for the hoops and merit-poor
uncertain of my balance score.
But what if in the end
charity is all we have?
...is all there is?
What if available to me is
only bounteous, generous
love-of-God charity? What then?
Will I be taken in?
