But Here We Are

charity-open-hands

vampire female about to changeWe stand on ledges.
Lost in the horizon.
Caught between beauty
And despair.
Holding back rivers.
Damming up the ocean in ourselves.

We don’t want to be seen like this.
But here we are.

We forget
We are beautiful.
Passionately,
Wonderfully,
Bearing the image of God.

God’s sorrow.
Compassion.
Surrendering love
To those most in need.
Often
Imperfectly giving too much.
But it’s who we are.

In the muchness of it all,
Overwhelmed,
We step back from that ledge.
Not for ourselves,
But for those
Who still need us.
