armor and clay sonnet

 

IN THE MIDST OF SUFFERING I REMEMBER WORDS

OF JESUS BEFORE HE TOOK THE CROSS.

¨I DO NOT ASK YOU TO TAKE THEM OUT OF THE WORLD.¨

I CLING TO THEM NOW AS I FEEL LOST

 

AND BOUND AND BURNT AND SPENT, TORN AND TOSSED.

CHEWED UP. SPAT OUT. FORGOTTEN AND MISUSED.

UNCELEBRATED. MY MIND WITH EXHAUST.

AS I BATTLE THE REASON FOR ABUSE.

 

¨MAKE THEM ONE AS I AM WITH YOU.¨

SO I AM WOUNDED BUT NOT BEATEN.

YET I KNOW AS I WALK THE CHALLENGE NOT THROUGH.

STILL JESUS´ WORDS ARE EMBEDDED AND GREETED.

 

MY ARMOR SO STAYS ON. I FAST. I PRAY.

HE IS THE POTTER. I AM THE CLAY.
