Poem based on Matthew 15:21-28

She looked up and said Daddy

I love you
and I knew there was depth that was unsurpassed
She loved
not out of need
not our of want
but out of the depth of her life
Oh to have love like that
deep total faith
and adoration
The woman knew that
even with the expected words of the time
She knew that love and adoration
and faith
She knew this Jesus was the one
the Holy one
who could being life
in the midst of death
and Jesus looked at her
breaking through
theology and tradition
and said
to this child of God
marginalized by our own insecurities
You of great Faith
Go in the Peace
You bring to this World
