+ 27.225 MHz 287: After A Worm And No Man

Bur I am a worm, and not a man . . .

---Psalm 22:6


"I am no one, constructing eternity

so I can live forever."


[published on the website, All Poetry,

under "Anonymous Americas"]


Although a nobody, I am not no one:

to secure my salvation, Christ, God's only Son,

gave Himself to death for the sake of me;

in His, the Maker's, Poetry---

He has constructed my eternity;

despite my carnal perfidy,

and my clumsy anonymity:

all this He has done,

despite the fact that I am such a contrary one.


Author's Notes/Comments: 

Psalm 22:6 and Ephesians 2:10.
