Unto Ourselves

Are there not limits to how much
Saving of ourselves
We can do?
If ‘God helps those who helps themselves
Where does that leave the helpless?
If ‘we are the ones we’ve been waiting for
Where do we go
When we don’t know where to go?
How can we lead
When we haven’t been led?
Show grace when we’ve never been
Afforded the benefit of the doubt?
Love when we have no idea
What it is?
Maybe this is what is to come of age,
In our times,
To be an adult?
To be for ourselves
The things we never had?
