Put Your Body Where Your Heart Is

by J-T Kelly

Put your body
Between the bodies
Of the breaking
And the broken

Put your body
Underneath
Another body’s
Crushing burden

Put your body
In the street
To lift a body
From the gutter

Put your body
At the service
Of a weak
And sickly body

Put your body
In the prison
Where to tend
Imprisoned bodies

Put your body
On the altar
Be the body
That is broken

Put your body
In the grave
With decomposing
Everybodies

One thought on “Put Your Body Where Your Heart Is

  1. Put your body under all
    For just a little while
    So eyes of humble keeper
    Sees the smiling face of God
