Ordinary Joes Can Change the World

by Irvin Rozier  
8/03/2007 / Poetry

An ordinary Joe is not famous in any way
He just goes about his business day by day
You pass many ordinary Joes on the street
They are not influential enough for a politician to meet

Ordinary Joes live their lives, have families and work
Many of them have jobs with nary a perk
Yet deep inside they believe in their fellow man
Their Mom or their Dad is their number one fan

Ordinary Joes just want to be left alone
They could care less about sitting on a throne
But these ordinary Joes can be a powerful force
When they unite with one purpose and with one voice

God often chooses ordinary Joes for a specific task
He knows that only in His presence they will bask
Noah was an ordinary Joe, a hardworking man
When God gave him an ark to build according to His plan

Gideon's family was poor and of them he was the least
When God chose him to change the famine to a feast
Amos was no prophet, just a herdman was he
When God said go prophesy, I have chosen thee

Peter and John were ignorant and unlearned men
Yet Jesus chose them as disciples along with the other ten
The Bible is filled with stories of those that God chose
To turn the world upside down though they were ordinary Joes
