Grace

There are feelings that we try to grasp

Sometimes we can be more than whole

like we are so content with life we feel like we could live forever

like we are superhuman.

There are these things that we grasp at

sometimes desperately

(we need this)

sometimes we can become less than nothing

without sensible justification or reason

and we are mean because we are looking.

We are thinking

how can this be?

We are looking for an answer and the answer is not there

because sometimes there is no justice

other than the justice we create.

When we are thinking;

how can this be?

and we are looking for an answer and the answer is not there

we forget that there is not justice but there is grace.

And unlike justice that makes us cold and hardened to the things that we think people deserve

grace makes us soft and merciful.

It sits inside of us, calming us.

Sometimes we forget that people can be kind

and we forget to have the good grace to be kind to people

Yet with grace we can feel more than whole

we can feel so content with life we feel like we might live forever.
