Lilies of the Field

Lilies of the Field


fancy costumes
we don't really need,

we'll never look
as beautiful as lilies.

the man said.


so how much 
should we care 
about impressing 
anyone?

he said:
not much at all.


if he's right about that,
then what should i be
so concerned about?

one thing only,
and it doesn't show.

not beautiful suits
of highest fashion.

not how good we look,
it doesn't count.


fancy costumes
we don't really need,

we'll never look
as beautiful as lilies.

the man said.
