“Watch the sky drip,
the earth melt,
the seas all roll into one.
Watch the rocks crack, the ground fold,
the ocean split.
Watch the stars tear,
the hills snap,
the clouds rip-
You’d be above me.
I’d know You were above me.
So even though I’d be scared,
I’d know it happened at Your word,
so though I’d scream, it would be Your name.
Everything around me,
it was all designed to be temporary,
but You will never change.
You will never leave,
You will always be,
and I can live eternally too
if only I learn to stick with You.
Your light is always accessible,
but it’s so easy to choose the dark.
I know that each and every lost soul breaks Your heart.
Being part of Your family
means miraculous and beauteous things are in store for me,
and I want to thank You for that chance;
I want to thank You for the cross,
because if you were entirely and wholly just I would still be lost.
Condemned to chains, taken by hellfire
and bringing offerings to sin,
but at the expense of Yourself, You opened Your doors and You took me in.
So watch the Sun break,
watch the trees shake,
watch every creation split in two
just to bow down to You.
I’m only human, I’m only a sinner,
but in Your mercy I have escaped the punishment and the blame;
so know that when that day comes, Lord,
I will shout Your name.”
‘Your Name,’ - Megan’s Poetry #440
