Kiss My Foot

What if my foot felt lowly and blue,

Looking up at a knee or a wrist.

And began turning green, as we’re prone to do

When we fancy the glory we’ve missed.


Can’t you just hear my toes up in arms,

Crying out from the depth of my sole?

Wriggling that I might notice their charms

They might topple me off in a hole!


And where would I be without my best foot

To step forth and traverse terrain?

If my heart said to dance, would I just stay put?

The thought of it boggles my brain!


If we are attached, whose itch have I scratched?

Whose misery or glory dismissed?

Though my tongue’s in my cheek, heed the wisdom I speak—

Pucker up! There’s a foot to be kissed!

This poem was written by Margie Mayfield on August 29, 1996. Margie is a member of Bear Creek Baptist Church in Houston, Texas. Her poem captures the thought of 1 Corinthians 12 and reminds us that every member of the church is important.
