Where God Has Chosen

I look around at seven

different faces and still feel

lonely. Knowing this is it, this

way is the one and only. My heart

beat is slow, I’m being called to a place

I don’t want to go. I look at my Bible

and can hear the words, “This is the place

I need  you to be.” I hold in my tears

that want to be free. Alone. Me

against my destiny. So many

years are thrown to me. Can I

reach the people God wants?

I swallow and gag, but hold down

a happy front. This is where God

has chosen, where I pursue

my mission. Still one question,

why send me? I’m only 17.

There’s so much I’m missin.
