DAY 29 – Leaning Into The Arms Of Grace


Leaning Into the Arms of Grace
El Collie, 1995

You study to powerful it out.

You study to just accept.

You study to give up.
You study to lean into the arms of grace

each unseen, from the realms above,
and prolonged by way of a human hand.

You get by way of tattered and torn across the edges.
You get by way of questioning how you’ve got managed

to make it by way of this far

You get by way of hanging on for expensive life.
You get by way of shaken and shuddering

and sheared of all the things

however your quivering thoughts and quaking coronary heart,

and the distant echo of a reminiscence that this was why you got here right here.

although you assume there was some colossal mistake,

inscrutably, extremely, one thing in you is aware of

that that is exactly what you got here right here
so valiantly to endure:

this cruel nakedness
of coronary heart and soul.

My mom, El, was 54 years outdated when she died by suicide.
