The Outside Step


Knock and the door will be answered

It’s freezing out here

Cold hands cold steel and stone


Seek and you shall find

A corner to pray in

If you’re quiet enough


I don’t wear cross necklaces

I hold my hands in front of my chest

I am

Enough; because of Him!

I am

Too full

Too blessed


Hammer on it!

Let the church aisles ring!

There’s a girl out here!

She’s trying to get in!


I will climb the parapet

I will look through the window

They can say things

Over over over

But they cannot make me go


Maybe I could kiss another

Jesus lover

Perhaps on this outside step

She knocks

A girl with bloodless hands

Like me
