All of My gods

In the story of the rich man
the one who could not follow
told by Christ to sell it all
but unable to let go
his goods had become his gods
his possessions controlling
his focus not on the king
on his things on the earth

How sad, bewildered
though he followed the law
unable to follow the king
when he gave his heavenly call
Sell it, leave it, walk away
follow me instead
each and every day
