Hadrian's Wall
By Jeff Johnson
– Hadrian's Wall, Housesteads, England / August 1989

I am not prepared at all,
My body, like a Roman ruin, shudders in the storm.

It is not unlike my life,
A heap of schemes and projects that lie crumbled on the ground.

But like Hadrian's Wall, I'm still standing –
Standing on this wall,
Standing in this storm.

Stretching clear across this world,
The 'Emperor of Glory' has decreed it to stand.

Reaching right into my heart,
A barrier of grace against the wretch that I am.

Just like Hadrian's Wall, I'm still standing –
Standing on this wall,
I'm standing in this storm.
