Wish - Poem by Harlan Simantel

i wish i had the strength of sampson
the athletic similar skills of david in psalm 18
the graceful, inspiring scene

could speak all languages
as they did in the book of acts
it would be so very verbal!
to make friends in every tribe and nation

i wish isaiah's words were true
literally - for me
youth renewed
(oh, sexually too!)
run and not faint
so the world would see
what the Creator does
thru you and me
not for our glory
but for the Creator God

what He can do thru vessels of clay
within we
who are actually - quite eccentric and odd!
