Chicken egg

Chicken egg
by Joel Howard

We are all born into earth, like chickens from eggs
We all have heads, arms and legs
Naked we enter, naked we return
And from the chicken egg there's a lesson we can learn

A wealthy man complains of the size of his garage
Like a chicken the tint of his egg
The poor man wants a larger home as well 
and the chicken no doubt wants a bigger shell

But from the scope of eternity, when we're born into heaven
We will forget the way things have been
Like a chicken casts off that once central shell
We will forget all we strove for, in our poverty or wealth

"I wish I was yellow or spotted or stronger" 
but we wont care about these old shells any longer
When Jesus returns and we all go home
We will wish we had made his name central alone
