To Be Used or Not To Be Used

Used

I want
to have a heart split
wide open to the world

Heart World

to give a listening ear
offer a willing hand
speak a kind word

to help with no
thought of the bother
to me

but

I am afraid

afraid of giving
too much
of losing my time

to rest
to redeem those rushed
minutes of everyday

afraid of being asked
to work beyond my
abilities or desires

but

then I hear

are you so afraid
of someone
using you

that you won’t let
yourself be used
by Me?

Crown Heart
