Poem based on 20th Sunday after Pentecost Mark 10: 17-30

Give me a lever long enough
and a place to stand
and I can move the world.
I can do it,
I have figured it all out
on paper.
There are only two problems,
no one has a lever long enough
and there is no place to stand.
No Place To Stand!
And I shudder at the thought
of limitations.
I have been able to do it all
I have run the race well.
Only to come to this point
on the edge of nothingness,
and everything.
And I find the sign
--(All things)
road closed,
can I fail now
After all I have done
--(are possible)
by myself?

--(with God)
