The Penny

When she tossed her last penny
into the bowl of collections,
her stomach grumbled with hunger
her eyes closed in prayer
her mind shouted with worry
her body ached in despair;
and still
her heart leapt with joy
for the broken one
who just might hear
the Word of God
if only because
of her penny.
