Poetry... (Unwilling) On My Knees

The will to survive --
Me?
Hardly.

There was a time in my life
when I fell so hard
that I was sure it rendered my knees
permanently useless.

If I'd had my way
that day,
lightening would have fallen
from heaven
to put me out
of my misery.

Debilitated,
with no will left in me
to live,
(sure I would never walk again)
the fear of God
forced breath
into my lifeless lungs.
(I'd have preferred them to go limp,
considering the pain
behind each breath.)

Somehow,
not by my will,
but by divine will,
I was able to crawl.

Strength?

I stand in awe:
There is no strength
like the strength
poured out on a cripple
when they're broken down,
helpless and hopeless,
lifeless,
on their knees.

I don't know how,
but there's power
when I'm on my knees.
Joyce Pool

On My Knees
from "Heavenly Place"

by David Mullen, Nicole C. Mullen, Michael Ochs



There are days when I feel
The best of me is ready to begin
Then there're days when I feel
I'm letting go and soaring on the wind

'Cause I've learned in laughter or in pain
How to survive

Chorus:
I get on my knees
I get on my knees
There I am before the love
That changes me
See, I don't know how
But there's power
When I'm on my knees

I can be in a crowd
Or by myself almost anywhere
When I feel there's a need
To talk with God He is Emmanuel

When I close my eyes, no darkness there
There's only light

Repeat Chorus

I don't know how but there's power
In the blue skies
In the midnight
When I'm on my knees

Repeat Chorus

You have so much power when you are on your knees. He sees what no one else does and hears when no one else does. The pit is the place He takes the miry clay to form us into His glorious design for us. Beautiful poem.
