down from heaven

down from heaven

A broken limb falls

Silently off its sturdy home

To the unknown below


Where new ground beckons

and a stranger judges its roots

with mockery and contempt


the soil feels uncharted

a mystery full of angst

the limb unworthy to be a part


but rather, see the beauty

with a mind, different than mine

and a heart of mercy


dare I touch that is divided

what I cannot fathom

and be then degraded from my own


a decision to make which is grueling

but the limb is there, still

alone in pleasantness, content


and I, now wrestle with peril

whom I thought I’ve always known

now, I search for the mercy he has brought


Proverbs 4:6 Do not forsake wisdom, and she will protect you; love her and she will watch over you
