This poem was written by a young woman who met Jesus while she was in prison. The simplicity of her child-like faith blessed me so much I asked her for a copy and she gave me permission to share it with others.
A MAN I NEVER KNEW
Written by Mona McCall in CRC Women’s Prison, 1993
I never knew a man – a man I couldn’t see.
A man that says I could be everything, I ever dreamed I could be.
A man that takes away everything, the biggest of my fears,
A man that says He counts not just one… but all my tears.
A man that gives me sunshine, and showers me with rain,
A man that holds me close – When my heart is filled with pain.
It was hard at first, for me to trust… Trust a man I couldn’t see.
It was hard for me to understand – How could this man love me?
But I do know such a man. And it’s not so hard to believe,
That this man will always love me for being nothing special, just me.
This man I know is JESUS CHRIST, And He’s given me all that I need.
And the one thing I can give Him back… Is being everything He wants me to be.
