No longer


No longer seeking judgment
No longer seeking fame
No more looking for satisfaction
Or vying for personal gain
No longer seeking advancement or longing to be in command
Not waiting for winds of fortune to smile on the best laid plans

All life is simply waiting
for hope in place of need
For peace instead of suffering
Gratitude in place of greed
For someone to be of service
And to speak the words that heal
Giving away each day by day
as if each day were free
No longer seeking the comfort that others so desperately need
but sharing the time that’s left in our lives
to see the world redeemed
