Forgiveness of Things Past (2005)

In the world’s eyes
a fault indicates a rupture
the earth at war with itself
that breaks all we have built
but from every hot
fault springs new life needy, and eager
bridging the disconnect with something new
This is grace
looking beyond the fault
and seeing the need
Holding back nothing
I slip out of my self
and allow myself to see you
as God sees me
broken to be rebuilt
