MAYBE IT LOOKS LIKE THIS

MAYBE IT LOOKS LIKE THIS

( a little pantoum)

Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like children, 

you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.  

~Matthew 18:3

I can’t. It’s too hard.

You can’t make me.

I’m not big enough.

I can’t fix it.

 

You can’t make me.

I’m hungry. I need a nap.

I can’t fix anybody.

I’m not brave enough.

 

It’s late. I’m so tired.

This isn’t fair.

I’m not strong enough.

I’m not holy enough.

 

This is hopeless–

the same lesson over and over.

I’m not advanced enough,

still powerless to change.

 

Same damn lesson over and over–

still way beyond me

and I am still powerless.

I give up.

 

This is too much for me.

I’m not big enough.

I give up. I quit.

This is too hard. I can’t.
