I Am Just A Man


You want me to always help you up
Even when I am laying next to you
You want I to always shoulder all your burdens
Even those that are you own making

But then, I am just a Man

You want me to always shield you from the sun
And want me to cover you from the rain
You want me to always wipe your tears
Even when you know I can drown in them

But then, I am just a Man

I want to always be your anchor
Guarding you from the violent waves
I want to always make you laugh
Even when the ground opens up to swallow you

But then, I am just a Man

I want to always answer when you call
Even when my own troubles weigh me down
I want to make life easier for you
So that you can live a fulfilling one

But then, I am just a man

Every day I want to do more for you my friend
Yet I can only do so much
Because, I am just a Man

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
