ENOUGH: HUMAN


"Then the LORD God formed the man from the dust of the ground. He breathed the breath of life into the man's nostrils, and the man became a living person." (Genesis 2:7)


I am not technology.


I am made from mud


and stardust


and the hot breath of God.


I am not smooth or clean,


I scratch and I break


and there is dirt


under my rough fingernails.


I am not machine –


I am creature.


I dance and weep and sweat


and I love with my awkward body.


I am not perfect.


I make people cry


and I fail


and I fall again and again.


I am human.


A messy, heaving,


broken, coarse, yet


somehow glorious, human.


Gideon Heugh, Tearfund
