Impact

Standard

For a while I wondered why I came…
I wondered what my purpose really was…
and now I know…
although it hurts me so…
I am there for them…
the ones longing for a night of freedom
freedom from the shekels of what binds them…
Lord I am there so that those kids can stop hurting if only for a moment.
I’m there to put a face to the name,
I am there to make an Impact.

I wrote this about being a Youth leader at a large scale outreach to middle schoolers called “Impact.”
Thus the title of this poem. That time helped me to grow out of my sheltered world and see that I really was not alone.
