As we often do, after we've used something, we throw it away, sometimes however, we throw things away that we later discover we need.

    Crumbled Up People

He asked for help
We told him to help himself
But he did not, because he could not or would not
Then he committed not...will not...tolerate sin
Like a piece of trash
We crumbled him up
Threw him away into that garbage heap of people
Thrown away
After a Torrentious rain
With condemning lightning and thunder
The light came down
From that garbage heap great flowers and grass grew
They looked...saw, and said
Look what we did
But the Lord said
No...Look what you threw away
