by Tabitha N. Munyoki
Sarah, the wife to Abraham. Sarah, mother of generations, Once synonymous with barrenness And struggle with unbelief. She cared little for vast wealth, Milk and honey. She ached for a babe Nourished at her breast Convinced by Abe’s encounter With a still voice, Promising healing of heart And a change of name. It made her hope, It made her laugh, And the waiting Made her doubt. And doubt led her to Hagar. Yet as she turned ninety, She shared in the Creator’s power, And witnessed the wail of her child.
