Am I a Fool?

Am I a fool
To let you see
The twisted snake
Inside of me?

Am I a fool
To fling open
The door of my heart
So you could know me ?

Am I a fool
When I trust you
To see that God
Is the only hope for me?

Am I a fool
To look in the mirror
Face my fears and cry
For what I long to be?

Am I a fool
To trust His way
Changing me
Day by day?

There is no fool
Who trustingly
Lays his life down
In God’s hands.

I am no fool!
