Peace be with me

I wrote this a few months ago but today felt like a good day for a reminder:


‘Peace be with me as I journey back to life.


Peace be with me as I wake,

and in the blink where night meets day,

I remember who I am and where I am.


Peace be with me as I leave my tomb,

walking out my resurrection:

writing out my own Monday Miracle Story

step by step.


Peace be with me as I learn

That coming back to life is a labyrinth

Not linear.


Peace be with me as I learn to be myself

In every room of my own life,

And every realm of my own soul.


Peace be with me

as the road named ‘Suffering’

gives way to one named ‘Joy’.


Peace be with me when the days are long

and the nights longer.

when all I crave is rest

but the gradient of my future rises steeply

on my near horizon.


Peace be with me as Unlived lives

taunt my present and request my sadness;

in my regret,

my longing,

my yearning

and my healing.


Peace be with me as I finally

see my chaos externalised;

walking away,

looking back,

with new eyes and new perspectives.
