We Come

We Come

the sun lays its rays

on mortal foundations

embracing all

no matter what station

warming us close

accepted, we come

with songs of life and love

our hearts turned over; now gentle doves

processed through suffering; we become

affirmed by the Son

blessings for those whose struggles we know

both high and low

we laugh, sigh, and cry


we came in chains and laden with things

but leave set free; on eagle’s wings

we fly

David J., a student of in the Calvin Prison Initiative wrote the above poem
