Prayer of the Small Mighty

Do as you do Let live what lives Push as you push He breaks as you give A poisonous lead sits in his pit He has been here before Of this he is sick Through fire and flame, droplet and 'cane He has been here before Has borne such pain Again and again He may crack or shatter O'er and o'er He has no say in the matter Do as you do And let live what lives Push as you push But he breaks as you give Silence will he breathe, And tall standing be. Strong as steel and of finest alloy; Has been since but a mere boy. Feathered within, as cancellous bone. He begs for relief from this relentless hone. Come now and comfort, For the storm is gone. Come now and comfort, I will move on. Come now and comfort This small child in me. Come now and comfort, Stop my trembling.
