    A Child of God

    A child of God,

    I know the song.

    I know the words to tell the story.

    But feeling it …

    Living in a world of struggles,

    not wanting to struggle,

    I see myself

    and turn away.

    But mirrors can distort.

    I tell the world to take the step

    and God will show.

    Time and tears and teetering …

    I stepped today

    and didn’t fall.

    I asked,

    He led,

    We shared.

    To you perhaps no miracle.

    To me

    —I have a Father.
