Clumsy

Falling with Grace

Come see the girl who

Can’t stand on her own two

Even if you’re a sky diver

She falls far more than you

When she wears shorts

Want to know what you’ll see?

Temptation

Drinking

Smoking

Idolatry

All scraped across her knees

Yes, that was she

Succumbing to the numbing

Getting over one hump

While she sees the other coming

Her heart strings are strumming

The sweet tune of battle wounds

Something is pulling her down

While another is pulling her through

She wonders why she’s falling

And getting up too

God is that you?

“For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” - Romans 3:23
