With This Family

December 28, 2015

Wild though it may seem

This life can be

So  we can only believe

That it is producing in us

Something unheard of…

What of this LOVE

That this book speaks?

What of its promises

To those who are being held?

When we let it in

Fear and shame expelled.

What of this LOVE

That should be portrayed

To those living as sisters and brothers?

What of its miraculous power

To redeem those who

Without merit or ability stand together?

What can I bring to this family?

My unwavering faith,

My deep compassion,

In all its strange

And awkward fashion.

I empty my soul of self

In order that through this FAMILY

Love can grow and flourish.
