Searching for God

"Where are You, God?" she asked into the morning stillness, Listening hard for an answer, waiting impatiently. "I want to know You more." But all she heard was nature and a reassurance of "I am here". All day long, she looked for Him, Remembering His presence in her past And anticipating His role in...

To Change the World

"I want to change the world," she told Him. "But you don't know the world," He replied, "How can you change something you don't know?" "Well then, let me make its acquaintance." So He led her to Europe And showed her dazzling landmarks and bustling cities, Enchanting her with each step and every vie...

Together

Buried under the onslaught of debris, She struggles to pull herself up, Only to realize that she cannot do it alone. Overwhelmed by the possibility of sinking, She stops trying to fight the storm; It's so much bigger than she is. As she looks around, she see hands, Waving through the air, looking fo...

At the Clinic

I look into the sea of faces as I walk past, Nameless to me now, but not for long. Another day of work is starting. As I bring each patient back, I struggle to communicate with them- My broken Spanish a poor match for their nonexistent English And their burdens weighing down on both of us. No job, n...

The Pieces

Picking up the pieces of my broken heart, Trying to sew them back together, But I can't seem to find the right thread To get the job done. Maybe part of the problem Is that I left some of the pieces with you, back in Colombia, And now that we're not talking, I don't know how to get them back. Just l...

I love this quote! I would happily relive all of the times of pain and suffering in my life if it meant I would also get to relive the divine joy, the excitement, and the passion for life that also came along the way. All of those experiences made me who I am today, and I wouldn't be complete withou...

Fred, I really enjoyed reading your poem...you expressed what so many of us feel sometimes in times of transition and don't have the words to describe. A friend once told me that times of transition are the best times of life because they are like a set of trapeze bars. You have the choice to cling ...

Freedom

Flying through the air With no idea where I’m going, I drift past the clouds Seeing the shapes shift slightly In the gentle breeze. I recognize each shape And they all make my heart sing. Visions of happiness, of love, Of everything that’s most important to me And brings me joy. The weight of the wo...

Lost in the Maze

Do I turn left here? Or was I supposed to go right? Or straight ahead? Maybe it was straight ahead? I’ve gotten all turned around again, My sense of direction once again failing In the maze of life. The first few turns were easy, I knew exactly where I was and where to go next. The sun was shining b...

Margherita, Thank you for this beautiful set of words! They calmed my worries more than I could have imagined about decisions I'm trying to make for the future and showed me a new perspective...the beauty of here and now...enjoying each moment I have instead of worrying about what is yet to come. Th...
