What Am I?

What am I?

What am I? Who am I?
Hear the desperate, honest cry;
Answer the question? Shall I try?
To a question of my own reply?

Who am I? One in a million
Living in vanity under the sun(1)
Undistinguished, here barely at all
And none here my name again will recall

What am I? Tissues, organs,
Bones formed in the shape of Man
Arms and legs, neck and spine
Body parts that I call mine

What am I? An atom mass
Inhales gas, exhales gas(2)
A million particles all in one
Decingrates when life is done.

What am I? Depraved, disgraced
A past of sin I can't erase
Made of dust, returned to dust(3)
A vile creature worthy of disgust

Who am I? A wretch now called
To be redeemed from effects of the fall
Elected to be saved through Christ
According to His sacrifice

What am I? A human soul;
Washed in blood and now made whole.
Nothing good on my own,
Full of worth through Christ Alone.

What am I? A work not yet done
Still being conformed to the likeness of the Son
Having, through faith, been justified(4)
In the process of being sanctified.

Who am I? One of few
Saved by grace, made new;
Promised glory when I fly
To a land where I'll never die.

1) If you have not asked questions in my current Q&A, you can do so HERE!

2) I have exams tomorrow... Prayer is appreciated! My grades have been good so far... We'll see what happens. ;)

3) Yes, I know I posted earlier today. But I wrote this and wanted to show it to all of you. XD

Awe, thanks! That means a lot. It's a gift that God gave me and I try to use it to the best of my ability, but sometimes I feel what I write is not very good, like I can't really express what I'm trying to say (especially recently!). Your comment was really encouraging!

This was great!  Thank you for sharing.  I love how you began with such raw, basic element descriptions and ended with the positive joy of being redeemed.  Being one of Christ's definitely provides an identity change, praise the Lord!

Thanks Grace! I'm glad you liked it! Yeah, I kinda tried to give it almost a dreary feeling at the beginning and  then inspire a feeling of hope towards the middlish part.
Amen, it certainly does! Speaking of identity change, I should get that series rolling again sometime in the near future... ;)
