Never Doubt

exquisite light and beauty…
this is YOU
not what I see in you
but what and who you are

despite the pain
despite what looks like brokenness
despite the bleakness
that passes
for your presence
at times

it is not hopeless
never hopeless

I know

I see bleakness
where there once were forests
and grasslands

I see brokenness
where once there were
glaciers full of
precious water

and yet

there is hope
there is thriving
there is resilience

oh yes

there is thriving

that is the way
of a living system

that is the way
of a vibrant soul

and (beloveds)

you
are
both

living
and
vibrant

never doubt this
never doubt yourself
