On The Floor – Poem.


She is on the floor
Doubled over
Her body going through spasms
Not of pleasure but of pain
She is wailing
But you wouldn’t be able to tell
See, she doesn’t make a sound,
But if you take time to watch closely enough
You will know she is breaking
And if you keep watching long enough
You will finally see the pain kill her
Suffocating the breath and life
Out of her body until she becomes
Just another dead soul walking around
And if you keep watching long enough
You will see a man
A man who knows about broken people
A man who knows about dead souls walking around
You will see this man come to her
You will see this man hold her hand and raise her from the dead
You will see this man put her broken pieces back together
And if you keep watching long enough
You may even find out the man’s name.
Jesus!



Bible Verse:


“The Spirit of the Lord God is upon Me,
Because the Lord has anointed Me
To preach good tidings to the poor;
He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted,
To proclaim liberty to the captives,
And the opening of the prison to those who are bound;
2 To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord,
And the day of vengeance of our God;
To comfort all who mourn,
3 To console those who mourn in Zion,
To give them beauty for ashes,
The oil of joy for mourning,
The garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness;
That they may be called trees of righteousness,
The planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified.”

Isaiah 61: 1-3


Tikva
