not i

it is not i.
who can pen this line.
who can pause in time.
i have no power.
of moving these feet.
through dirt, the street.
there are no traits.
holding my being.
over its head.
of taking the living.
of raising the dead.
no hope.
no power.
no praise.
not i.
not you.
only one.
who can call from the sky.
each star by name.
who knows my name.
only one.
who carries me.
over mountains and pain.
whose tears fall like rain.
the rain.
He reins.
only one.
