It Is Amazing

It Is Amazing

written by: Susan Bocinec Terry



I am amazed that
the earth hasn’t
broken off its axis
from the weight of
all the people we’ve
buried inside of it,
all the people
living on it and all
the debris and
abuse it has taken.
It is still round
and perfect,
never crashing into
the moon or the sun,
holding all of us,
sinners and saints,
ashes and bones.
