By Another Name

Tonight I spoke of gravity
and apathy
but I omitted the way
your hair falls down your shoulders

The kids were nervous and using
$10 words
and at least one of them
asked us to come to Jesus

I smiled so hard the whole time
It'd been so long
since I'd been to church, I forgot
how much youth hurts
    when your heart is sweet
    and you don't understand
    the only enemy
    is gravity and apathy

I guess I call grace by another name
