Like A Sparrow

Poetry By: skilletgirl2

After reading the verse in Matthew, Jesus takes care of me right?

Just as He feeds
The birds of the sky
He hears my cry
Just as he fends
For them,
He cares for me
If only I trusted him
I could be free
Like the sparrows
Riding the air
Beneath their wings
Those little birds'
Hearts worry free
I envy the sensation
Of safe, careless
The strength and power
An eagle must feel!
But I'm too stubborn
And impatient
My soul drops to the pit
LIke a slimy, electrified eel
But Isaiah told me
To wait on the Lord
And his strength
So I can rise like an eagle
And swoop like a sparrow
I'm sick of sitting
In this nest of despair
Come on, Lord!
Get me out of here!
I wanna feel free
Soar above the trees
Be everything you want me to be
But tears threaten
To destroy me
My spirit's shaking
Like a leaf
Come hold me steady
I need a daddy
Who will take care of me?
