In the Presence of Grace

During times of deep reflection and sadness
There are only a few to count on
To look and seek guidance from
It was meant to be this way
You were supposed to figure it out on Your own
From the reflections of others
There’s deep wisdom embedded in Your soul
Knowing that
Takes time and practice
Vigor and commitment
A journey like this
Can only be simplified by God
Because with God
You take Your first steps here
And Your last
Luckily, every step in between
Is also in the presence of God’s grace
And gentle guidance
Make sure You seize the moment
In which ever way You can
The rest will follow
Soon the hollowness
Will be replaced
With the sweetness You taste
When God shines a light upon Your face
Come my child, have You had enough of this race?
