Freewriting Day 23: Anyone, Anywhere?

I wrote this a few days ago on a notepad, and I think the order of a few pages got a little jumbled. I finally just decided to post it anyway.

Is there anybody anywhere willing to say, "I am unashamed? 

For this cause I live
For this cause I die?"

Is there anybody anywhere who will stand for the truth?
Is there anybody anywhere who is tired of the status quo?

Is there anybody willing to say, "I'll be different"? 
I know my life is not my own. I know someone has to make that choice.

Does anyone else know?
ANYONE?

Is there anyone willing to admit they have made mistakes?
Is there anyone willing to admit they have strayed from the straight and narrow path?

Is there anyone anywhere who will give up their position and title for the sake of a bigger purpose?
Is there anyone anywhere more concerned with where they stand with Him than the numbers in their bank account?

Is there anyone anywhere who cares?

Not spouting rhetoric or percentages 
Statistics or trends

Is there anyone anywhere who cares what the Father says?
We haven't bothered to ask Him because we don't really care
We'd rather fumble around in disbelief and remain ignorant than be made aware

Aware of all we haven't done
Of prayers we should have prayed
Of lives and families we could have impacted
If we hadn't looked the other way

We see our cold indifference staring us in the face
Hearts of stone replaced the heart of our youth
Before we became unwilling to change
