Face Down

Love God Love People


do you know?

can you say

the exact time

and place and day



that God bent your knees

broke your heart


gave you a big, big chance

at a fresh

born again




did it fizzle?


or bang

you down?



did it drizzle?


or spin

you around?



did you land

on your belly,

face down in the dirt?



did you lift

up your eyes

and admit

all your hurts?



did you take

to give?



did you die

to live?



like Jesus




This is one of my favorite poems.

I wrote and first posted it here

last year, February of 2012.
