Love and Comfort

Washed away all the bitterness,
The heartache, and the tears.
Left behind the anger,
The resentment, and the fears.
Releasing all that burdens me,
That does not resonate.
Quieting the mind for once.
There is no room for hate.

Filling all the gaps I find
Love and comfort
Left behind.

Gloriously Whole

If it's bent,
it is not broken.
If it's broken,
it is not shattered.
If it's shattered,
it is not whole.

Yet with a soul,
it can be broken.
It can be bent.
It can be shattered.
It will be whole.

The broken pieces are not needed;
they can be swept away.
The bent pieces create a newness that lives today.
The shattered parts were just illusions; parts we were told to play.

We let them go.

The broken.
The bent.
The shattered.
To find we are gloriously whole.

Hooray!
