Day of gratitude and reflection
thankful I am to a loving Father
who sent His Son to lift me from
the abyss of death, which chains
are no more, remembering every
miracle extended to me, healing
of my wounds, balm calming my heart
hard by a straight I stand or carrying
me along, building my life, bricks with
mortar, stitching tight the broken
nailing joints of forms, cross of beams
closing circles of memory, secure in
my journey, taking me out from a native land
seeing more clearly, linking the oppositions
breaking the codes that mask chaos
holding on, overcoming the challenge to let go.
