On disappointments

Don’t hold it in
speak out with compassion;
holes, if not addressed, only grow

The soul is like a womb

The soul is like a womb:
it’s job is to hold

The five-second invitation

“Ignore that for five seconds,” you whisper, “and come to me.”
Sometimes I don’t – I finish my task, ignoring the pull in my soul: Flash starvation
and sometimes I do – I put everything down: Flash nourishment

The short list

Only some things matter in life;
what you decide to put on your short list
will determine everything

Come, hide in me, says the Lord

Come, hide in me, says the Lord
for only I give clarity

Another reason to leave space in your soul

Joy expands
to fit the size of its container

Halfway trust

If I am your refuge
then you can take down your walls
If I am your defender
then you can put away your sword
If I am your help
then you can put back your tools –
Why do you call me your God
and yet surround yourself with walls and
weapons and things in which you trust?
Why do you shout out loud that I will rescue
and yet tremble that I won’t?
