Unexpected light

Out of death comes life
in unexpected light
the shuttered windows of the
mind fly wide
the opening of a heart
long closed to those
who inflicted old hurts
and mindlessly traumatized
one who only wanted to
be loved
for herself.
Tears and conversations
hugs and listening
the Child grows again
and again and again
running into God's arms
dancing joyfully

  1. hey, your poem seems just as good to me as many of the poems sexton wrote about her relationship w/God (i'm reading her Complete Poems). totally awesome write!

    i think it's really cool that you're able to heal and create very fine poems :-)
