(More Pieces to the Puzzle)
The Song to My Other Self
Over the years I have caught glimpses of you
in the mirror, wicked;
In a sudden stridency in my own voice, have heard you mock me;.
You are there, lurking under every kind act I do, ready to defeat me…
I have looked for you with new eyes, and opened to your tricks, but more, opened to your rootedness in life,
Come, I open my arms to you also, once-dread stranger.
Come, as a friend I would welcome you… Thus I would disarm you. For I have recently learned, learned, looking straight in your eyes;
The holiness of God is everywhere.
