Call
.
I am
Called to be
a Change-Maker
a Trail-Blazer
a Strong Leader.
Called—
to move Mountains.
I am.
 
Excitement, exhilaration, anticipation.
 
I can’t wait to start
Yet I start to wait
For something—
To happen
To appear
To start.
 
Nothing came, so I stood
Despondent.
 
Then they called out:
Faith without action is
 
Dead.
