If I could capture the bones and skeletons of words
And turn them into poetry and art!
To share skin on skin one human to another
And release the shackles of a beating heart!
My poem would implore us to sing out loud
To praise our God and reach out for one another!
Let us no longer hide our fears in silence
Let our wounds be healed in the balm of His presence!
Oh bones and skeletons and skin and hearts
These are the parts of beloved lives lived!
May these words on paper help someone believe
There is someone else out there who knows and sees!
