“You and I”

I try
You ignore

I strive
You abhor

I work
You abstain

I flex
You refrain

I conspire
You retreat

I perspire
You rest your feet

I climb
You‘re out of reach

I create
You cease to teach

I scheme
You hide

I dream
You step aside

I choose
You clear the way

I refuse
You have no say

now when….

You attend
I rest

You love
I am blessed

You work
I’m yoked

You burn
I’m stoked

You plan
I’m secure

You heal
I’m cured

You bleed
I’m redeemed

You give
I increase

You reveal
I’m revealed

You protect
I’m sealed

You elect
I’m adopted

You’re glorified
I’m exalted
