An UnOrdinary Belief

What if I wrote the truth
wrote it all down upon the page
held my heart for you to see
let you read its tears and joys

would you bring me one feather?

what if my soul was a china cup
already chipped through the ages
yet still a treasure with all its cracks
filled in my dreams with gold

could you believe in my flight?

I saw you
walk on water
perform miracles
rise from the dead

just an ordinary man they said was my father
just an ordinary father they said lived elsewhere

this is another poem

what if I didn't delete a word
and put all my mistakes
out to dry

but these edits are too tempting
as we redraft our lives

and love is a miracle in an ordinary world
