When You Kneel


When you kneel
you should feel
a presence far greater than you.

When you kneel
you should feel powerless to stand.

When you kneel
you should feel humbled and broken.

When you kneel
you should feel the sharp, raw edge of grief.

When you kneel
you should feel
the bruised shins and the scraped knees
of all those kneeling with you.

When did kneeling
become stealing
a man's last breath?

When you kneel
you should feel.
