A child

After Romans 8:12-25

A child, abandoned,
alone, is found and
touched, claimed,
adopted to become
a son, a son
who cries father
with assurance,
knowing he belongs
now, and because
of this, he’s an heir,
guaranteed a place
with fellow heirs,
able to claim
what is promised,
an inheritance of life,
an inheritance of suffering,
an inheritance of glory.
