  Shame on Me A Poem

by | Oct 18, 2014 | Poems, Thankfulness, Written By Kids

I didn’t want to go to work this morning,

when I got up my back hurt;

Then I thought of Jesus’ back

as He laid there in the dirt.  Shame on me


My legs felt like they wouldn’t hold me,

couldn’t go another step;

Then I thought of Jesus’ legs

carrying that cross as His mother wept.  Shame on me

I was just so tired after working all day,

then came home and took care of my girls.

Then I thought of Jesus……..

He took care of an entire world.  Shame on me


Even my hands ached,

I don’t know when I will be well;

Then I thought of Jesus’ hands,

how they must have hurt from those nails. 

Shame on me!

When I stood up my head hurt,

and it was spinning around and around;

Then I thought of Jesus’ head,

scarred from thorns made into a crown. 

Shame on me!


Just let me sit here enjoying my coffee,

it is the time for me to linger;

Then I thought of Jesus lingering on the cross,

with nothing to drink but vinegar. 

Shame on me!

My feet hurt from all the walking,

sometimes I don’t even have time to eat;

Then I thought of Jesus hanging on the cross

and I could see His’ precious feet. 

Shame on me!


Thank God you have a job to go to,

without it how would you survive?

Look at the job Christ had to do…..

for us He was crucified!

Shame on me, shame on you, shame on us!
