Now I Know!

by Gil Camporazo

I came upon this world
     Too long before I cried
     Not for my father's intuition
     Lest consciousness I gained not.

I lived in utter poverty
     Hard to eat - hard to live.
     My father's meager wage
     Not enough to feed the six.

I went to school
     No uniform. No ID.
     School activities deprived me
     No penny, no cents to get through.

Higher learning found solace I
     Latent talent found its way
     Happy to be through
     Livelihood truly led me.

Then a family raised I did
     Six of them loved them all.
     A mother, a wife to cherish
     Living, loving together, forever be.

A mission I saw:
     "Lovest thou me?", "Feed my sheep."
     "Who is my neighhor?"
     A dubious mind terribly pierced.

"Why me,Lord?"
     Worthy not to fill this task --
     Worthy not to heed this call --
     for infirm, frail -- I am!

Now I know --
     Unfailing faith taught me so
     A willing heart led me through
     It's me, Lord.

Now I know!
