Hone the gift of discernment

To think that I can be me, just as I am

To think that I can be me, just as I am
chips and cracks and glories and all
is an incredible thought;
it’s like that singular moment
where, after wearing shackles
you freeze in nakedness, disbelieving your freedom
and then you believe
and then you run

– So you cannot see what does

Newborn

As the gaze imprints upon the mind
so my voice imprints upon your soul
Imprints: Nothing can remove

Handling fire

This is not a game or a hobby,
this is my heart afire
and you, learning how to handle

The Lord my Bed

Scared, scared, I run to you
and hide in the Lord my Bed, who covers me

Allowing God to sift you

means allowing God to remove
anything and everything that obstructs,
especially the self
