On being clay

little lump of clay
so discontent
straining
to find some ornament
to glorify yourself

can’t you see
that knowing what you are
is the first step
to knowing what you can be?

your heart is not hard-
it’s dead

but there’s a Potter come to town:
come to make you over
come to give you life
come to fill you up
putting soft things within you

you were made of clay
to contain life
to carry love

be content with being clay:
let the Potter form you
carrying out His own design

On being clay
