Regarding Answers

By Sharla Moody, BK ’22. Sharla is currently undeclared.

A cup with a hole in the bottom

is held underneath a spigot

by a thirsty beggar who,

blind and weary, cannot drink,

for his cup is empty.

 

And the answers rush past him

too quickly to be caught,

or he chooses not to seize them.

 

How dare we come before You

with anything but our

humble wonder, how dare we

fester in our arrogance and

seek to unwind You.

 

And the frayed strings knit around us

a blanket of grace which

we could never pluck apart.

 

And you, Abba, tuck us into Your

pocket to rest. O Father, forgive us.
