Neighbor


 

You knock and knock

But I can’t let you in

My home is unclean

There's mountains of clutter from head to toe

I constantly stand in filth and dust

I hear you knocking

But I'm too ashamed to let you in

Why do you continue to knock?

Why don't you believe no one's home?

Aren’t you tired?

You have stood there for so long

So I finally cleaned my cluttered home

And I answered my door 

And there stood Jesus

Patiently waiting for me to let him in
