HUMBLED
Glenn Cook

The tears continue to flow from the pain
Everyday with failure after failure, hiding in shame
People going from one place to another playing the game
If only I could fall to my knees and call on His name.

The tears continue to flow from the stress
Trying to add up the scores like a game of chess
Pushing to win the race and move on to the next test
If only I could kneel and sense His caress.

The tears continue to flow from the heat
Feeling like the butchers fresh cut meat
Just a portion or a glimpse would be the treat
If only I would bow and worship His feet.

The tears continue to flow from the guilt
Stopped in mid game like a pinball tilt
Not pressing on to get my life rebuilt
If only I would fall and let Him fill me to the hilt.

The tears continue to flow while I am still reaching
From one church to another seeking the preaching
My soul filled with sin searching for the bleaching
If only I lowered my defenses and listened to His teaching.

The tears continue to flow with one thing Iím still understanding
He wants me like I am, is His only demanding
I shy away in fear of the reprimanding
If only I will go to my knees and let Him remain standing.

The tears continue to flow, my soul feeling the rumble
He has already lifted me up before I could crumble
I just realized that He did not want me to stumble
He just wanted me down some, a little more humble.

Glenn, once again this is a very good poem. You're quite right, it's a process of reaching that place where we will allow ourselves to be humbled in His presence. With love, Deb
