424. Follow my way

He is a puritan friend of mine.
He wants me to live
My life in his way.
Why should I?

I am a seeker.
I want to live my life
In my own way.
Why should I not?

To the puritan friend of mine, God says:
“Don’t be a beggar,
You will fail.”

To me, God says:
“Don’t be a chooser,
You will fail.
Follow My Way:
My Way is the only filler
Of your empty life.
My Way is the only fulfiller
Of your soul’s ancient promise.”
