So Hard to Understand

by Sally Hanan  
1/29/2008 / Poetry


Nothing beautiful about you;
scorned,
spat upon,
stripped,
suffering,
but your offering was beautiful to me
your sacrifice was beautiful to me.

Nothing attractive about you;
beaten,
bruised,
broken,
bleeding,
but your offering was beautiful to me
your sacrifice was beautiful to me.

It is hard to understand
that this
was the Lord's good plan for your life,
but the Lord's plan prospered
in your hands.

Nothing appealing about you;
weighed down,
whipped,
wounded,
waning,
but your offering was beautiful to me
your sacrifice was beautiful to me.

Nothing lovely about you;
desecrated,
discarded,
despised,
dying,
but your offering was beautiful to me
your sacrifice was beautiful to me.

It is hard to understand
that this
was the Lord's good plan for your life,
but the Lord's plan prospered
in your hands.

***
It is sometimes hard to understand
that this
is the Lord's good plan for my life,
but may the Lord's plan prosper
in my hands.

Let my offering be beautiful to you
Let my sacrifice be beautiful to you.
