With tears in my eyes

I ponder

all the recent changes in my life

New found friends

A reservoir of encouragement

An openness

and vulnerability

I’ve never known before

A new outlet

for expression

My poetry

a path to freedom

a new support system

a community of Believers

My God who forgives me

His Mercy

It’s new everyday

His Grace

No end to it’s abundance

For all of these

I am grateful

And my heart is lighter

God is Good!
