Words from the Creator

Words from the Creator

A Poem by Sarah Marie

I will sculpt you out of clay

With this potter’s hand;

At first you will be dust,

But you shall rise from sand.

In my image you shall be made,

Created with my frame in mind;

First I will make you good,

Then caring, meek, and kind-

I will add forgiveness to your heart,

For free will is hard for all.

In my likeness you shall be made,

But you will be quite small-

All the world will know your pains,

For fear and doubt are human things;

Yet always will I be there

For you to come to and cling.

I will paint you in ways

Beautiful only to me;

You shall be like a rare jewel

Too bright for the world to see.

I will call you mine,

And you shall be my own;

Some might love you, some might hate,

But you will never be alone.

I will show you how to speak,

How to laugh, sing, and praise;

You will be a joy to me,

A light in this potter’s gaze;

You will never need to earn my care,

Compassion, trust, or love;

You are the favorite creation

Of this Potter above.

Thank YOU for writing it, you wonderful person you! :D
This was a brilliant glimpse into the wonder and beauty of the ages... Creator and creation connected, and the vibrant view of the potter in echoes of the prophet Jeremiah. Such a moving, living write, precious poet.

I love it! I especially like how you incorporated the little refrences to the Bible when talking about "At first you will be dust", just like it says in Genesis! It's an amazing portrayale of God.
