Underneath

by Callie, 13, from Kansas

“What’s underneath,
When the floor caves in?”

 

Underneath the unsaved person?
There’s hell,
Gaping at him like a starving monster.

“What’s under me?
My world
Is falling apart, too.
But I’m saved.”

 

Underneath?
You want to know what’s underneath you
When everything crumbles?
Underneath,
My friend,
Are the everlasting arms.
