This Life Mysterious
This life fragile all too easily shatters.
Three tragedies I will never understand,
Crushing beauty, flowering hate, loss of innocence.
This life sorrowful breaks my heart.
Three states of being I will never comprehend,
Young cruelty, misogyny, willing victims.
This life confounding I cannot easily grasp.
Three failings I will never accept,
Love of ignorance, basking in stupidity, giving up.
This Life lovely lives in me immortal.
Three realities I understand. We only seem to die,
Seeds grow, and God is our source.
This Life alive sings to me.
Three things I accept but cannot fully fathom.
God’s patience, God’s goodness, the divine image of man.
This Life resilient feels deeply.
Three truths I hope to manifest.
(Mercy, kindness, gentleness) ,
The human heart divine.
