I Love It When People Look Down On Me


"Take heed when you think you stand lest you fall"

At half-century my life has taught me

This word of God and Grandma best of all


I am not a starter

The arrogant say

Everyone is smarter

So they all agree


As they look down on me what do they see?

Expensive shoes and insentient clay


But God my father looks on me with love

Not down as all his naughty children do

All his haughty children and maybe you


As the highest he must look from above

Yet God never looks down on me but sees

The glory of his reflected image

He only sees my health not my disease

As the carousel spins my pilgrimage


I love it when people look down on me

As then I get to watch the fancy fall

The sweetest little victory of all

I know who I am and who I will be


I love it when people look down on me

Because it is impossible!  You see?
