all

 

Here there is no Gentile or Jew, circumcised or uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave or free, but Christ is all and is in all.     

Colossians 3:11

 
 

 

All


Such a small word

To speak of totality

Everyone

No exclusions

All

 

I feel the rawness

Of its challenge 

Its ending of me 

Or some

The chosen few

All


I hear its call 

To danger and wonder

Walls falling

Barriers failing

All


I know its power

To disturb and disrupt

The graded and grouped

The labelled and lost

All


I breathe its freedom

Revel in the glory

This presence of life

That lights us

All


Such truth re-shapes

A divided world

Of us and them

And includes us

All
