Entry #4 Poetry: To Know Him by Karri Compton

To Know Him
(based on Philippians 3)
by Karri Compton

I count the dreary days of life
All in vain, of loss
Compared to knowing Jesus--
His perfect life, the cross.
I hate the world, its wickedness;
All is done for gain.
I count gain loss for knowing Christ
In power and in pain.
I understand the sinful pride
Of people and their greed;
Forgetting and forsaking all,
To know Him is my need.
