asking why do we thirst after things that don't fill us up and not thirst after the one who fills us up.

thirst

why is it that i thirst after you?

is it out of need, want, or have

is it the need to replenish

to be filled with necessity and not stuff

 

is it the want to be filled with you

and nothing else,

or

is it the want to be empty of me?

a wanting that only can be filled by you?

 

i want you...

i want less of me...

or

 

is it having a made up mind

a made up body

a made up spirit

having you dwell in me

 

i am thirsty because i am in need of living water.....

water that washes

water that restores

water that fills the empty space

 

i will thirst after you....
