(God’s “Recovering Codependent” Sonnet by Timothy J. Verret; “it’s how I cope to hope in letting others into my life but NOT before they knock and ask to come inside of me; Jesus doesn’t have to knock but He does because He’s NOT rude.”)
They come inside of you without knocking.
It’s rude of them to invade your quiet space
without asking. They say “concern.” Shocking
for they don’t want you all up in their face.
They come inside of me without asking.
It’s uncalled for that they don’t look before
they leap onto my lily pad, basking
in their triumph of “I fixed him.” No more!
“I am knocking. Open the door and I’ll come in,”
says Jesus. “I won’t enter unannounced.”
Jesus is NOT rude as to invade when
He’s not asked. Let him in by “Christ” pronounced.
Jesus knocks. He comes in without mocking.
The others don’t come in without knocking.
