Change is hard
I pay a price
Inside of me
Demands advice

I squirm and complain
Why is this true?
Change is so hard
Is this what I do?

I’m not pretty in change
I’m confused and slow
My heart is panting
Is this where we go?

And then those things
I cannot name
That stands against me
They really cause pain

I want to be at the top
Change puts me low
I don’t know
Others have the show

Ego see is always here
I’m important
I count
Change discounts me

Suffering at His knee
Crying out for help
My soul is stretched
His heart pours out love

He has my attention
Amazingly I grow
All through the pain and suffering
Jesus held my hand
