Gratitude

by Patience Agada

You turned a straw
Into an awe
when it lies in waste
making it the flock’s taste.

You let my lips fall apart
in sweet surprise
as tears cascade down my cheeks
in sheer reverence of your grace.


My knees have never tasted a ground
So welcoming and true
like your presence
my words become little
vulnerable and insufficient
to fully unveil my amazement.

You’re God 
No detesting
You’re able
No contesting
You’re merciful
I’m confessing
You’re love
I’m professing
You’re faithful
I’m manifesting

The poet you created has come to worship you.
