Why Me, Lord?

Why me, Lord?
Why me?
Why do I have this warm home?
Why me?
Why is my stomach full,
my water clean?
Why oh why? Me, Lord?
*
Why are my desires filled with
more
better,
nicer?
Instead of
enough
some
at least?
*
Why me, Lord?
Freedom
to move
speak
and think?
*
Why me Lord?
the luxury of dreams
The richness of possibilities
The future wrapped as presents?
*
Why must I suffer?
this seductive “I” ness?
that uplifts me
and elevates my dreams
while snuffing out theirs?

That ignores connectivity
and their suffering
…..For me.….For my.…..For mine?
*
Repeat , repeat, repeat, repeatedly suffering, Lord?
*
Until the hollowness and emptiness echos
within the sterility of my self-built walls
shut out from the rest of humanity.
*
Why me?
Not you?
Not them?
Not us?
*
*
*
*
*
*
