A Spoken Word Poem: “Count the Cost”

Count the Cost
It’s so easy to guard myself from the essence of sacrifice
And play the same mind game and do just enough to get by
But that’s not what it is to be great, it’s not what it is to be a saint
I don’t want to be dead bones in a box, washed white with paint…
