Simple Truth

by Randy Chambers, 1996-03-01

What confuses me so much?
What has caused me to lose touch,
with the simple truth which one time seemed so clear?

Since the day I let you in,
I've grown so much within,
but have I grown away from you as well?

I have learned so much from you,
what to say and what to do,
So I can live according to your word.

But where did I lose sight,
that there's more than wrong and right?
And there's more to life than following the rules.

You promised life abundant,
so why do I feel redundant,
in my daily efforts to renew my joy?

I guess the simple truth would be,
found in You, and You in me,
and how well your love can shine through me to others.
