Incarnation

Your mother 
carried you in her arms
Your father 
gathered food
You were needy
and lacked mobility
Even if you could
turn rocks to bread
someone else
would need to feed you
How odd 
it must have been
for the King
of all creation
to be subject to
the limits of
said creation
Incarnation it seems
requires great humility
and patience
and a willingness
to be weak
Maybe that’s why
so many avoid
the Christ-like life
Maybe
at least
it is why I do
