I ain’t no Jesus
But, I would like to be
I never wanted to be a nun
Much less a priest
I didn’t want to grow up to be a saint
like my sisters did
I didn’t like going to church when I was young
And going again is not in my plans
And still, I don’t want to read any holy books
Or travel to any holy lands
But I just want to BE Jesus. Or Jesus-ish.
I want to have Jesus eyes
I want to do the Jesus walk
I want to have Jesus hands
And think the Jesus thoughts
But if you ask my friends
They’ll tell you
For sure that
I ain’t no Jesus
But, I want to be
