You Emerge…

You Emerge…

written by: Dr. Molly Joseph

 

Out of
life’s furnace
you emerge
cleansed,
pure, unalloyed…

the fires
that devoured
destroyed
the frills
the fantasy world
that cocooned
your
fool’s paradise..

transience
surrounds
everything
you held
permanent,
perfect…

the slippery
edges
decide
your falls
in moments
unawares…

the scars,
just to
remind
unscathed
moments
of deliverance…

shedding
inessentials
life flows
on new
grooves…

a new earth, new sky…

patience
matters,
faith
pulls you
through
the thick
and thin…

you emerge,
pure, unalloyed…
