lessons in denial, lessons in grace

spring is coming too soon.
the ground was soggy, the air was wet
and my heart is not ready
because seasons match seasons
and this season is still winter.


continually reminded that there is a world outside of myself,
a world full of aching hearts, and desperate people.
what does selflessness truly look like?
and when i look in the mirror,
do i see self
or do i see others?


realizing that the absence of family and home
is a long season.
and longing is a part of life,
because longing sets us on the search
that leads straight into his arms.
