TRUST JESUS TODAY
This piece was written both in response to our world's obsession with false heroes and my enjoyment of writing using related words. In this piece, the "ownership" (hold, maintain, boast) of the attributes fills that challenge.
I do not possess the steady hands of a surgeon,
Nor the great mind of a philosopher.
I do not own the true arm of an athlete,
Nor the lilting voice of a singer.
I do not maintain the charismatic leadership of a politician,
Nor the commanding presence of an actor.
I do not hold the perfect balance of a gymnast,
Nor the unfailing timing of a comedian.
I do not boast the historic strategies of a general,
Nor the creative palette of a chef.
In this earthly world,
I am bland and colorless.
Too average in a world obsessed with heroes.
Quiet, common, a nobody.
But here is a secret I possess
That keeps me impervious to this nothingness.
Jesus knows my name.
