Poetry

Gene Stecher

It is very important to touch little children,
Even though some drive them off.
Children are the ones who inhabit God's domain,
and have the key to receiving it.
And Jesus touched and hugged and blessed.
So what's the key?
Total dependency?
Unconditional trust?
Naievete and purity?
No indeed!
Be a nobody!
Be untouchable!
Be a slave!
God's domain
is where
the untouchable
are touched.
