Leaving Adam’s Arms


Escaping conflicted comfort

It is natural
To seek comfort
In the arms of Adam

Falling back
On the familiar patterns
And role models of culture

Taking up
The weapons of grievance
Of shame and status
To make our Self
Feel better

What would it take
To surrender instead
To the arms of Christ?

Stretched out wide
Naked and vulnerable
Trusting only in God
To save me
To save you
To save us
To save Them
