Mankind and man is used in the general sense, meaning- man/woman.

Sometimes, we take things to the Lord, leave them at the foot of the cross only to take them back again.
-Cast your cares on the Lord...and He will sustain you…and, will never let the righteous fall. Psalm 55 v 22

Man is always looking…searching for everything in this life

Man is always poking around; sometimes creating his own strife

Ask him what he’s looking for so desperately everyday

He thinks he’s lost so he is avidly trying to find his way

He is looking for peace and comfort;

Man wants to make a brand new start

He’s looking everywhere for an answer

But the answer is etched upon his heart

Man is miserable and unhappy now he’s looking for some joy

So he’s out on the town most every night kickin’it with his boys

Still man feels lost and lonely; he’s sad and stressed and feeling blue

He is trying hard, he’s doing his best but he still doesn’t have a clue

Why he always feels frustrated; why things are they way they are

Why he is making a decent living yet things are never up to par

He has the home, the car, the children and makes a very good salary

He has a spouse who really loves him; yes, he’s been blessed materially

He has everything he’s ever wanted; man is living out his dream

The banks are filled with man’s investments and he is living off the cream

All the time and money he invested to make his world a better place

All the blood, sweat and tears that he put into creating his own space 

All the energy he expended to be the best that he could be

Could never have prepared man for the experience that he had spiritually

All the things that he was searching for here, there and everywhere

The peace, the joy, the love, the comfort were never further than his prayer

He searched so long for peace and happiness,  tired, hungry and in doubt

Always feeling so disappointed , emotionally empty and wiped out

Man was looking in the world around him instead of looking deep within

Man was carrying years of baggage when he could’ve given it all to Him

Man keeps toting around his baggage when God said- give it all to Him

A spritually brilliant and philosophically powerful poem. In MANKIND the full light of the poet's soul shines through with wisdom, strength, and love. It is beautiful to behold.

Is it an ego thing with us?
You know, why let God do it when I can do it myself? I think.

Maybe we'll learn something here.
A provocative write of real substance.

In this superb writing you have so elequently, and clearly stated what life is all about...the important things that we search for will one day mean nothing. Nothing can fill that void like God can. Blessings & peace, Holly
