angels and earth…

we make it a little softer here for someone

some of us just aren’t made
for how hard the edges are here,
for how slow pain moves,
or how lost light can get,
and how heavy it all can weigh…

we’re surely not made for how flawed humans love.

but while we’re here…
we can try to love a little deeper, and burn
a little brighter, and maybe, just maybe,
we make it a little softer
here for someone.

revival…

love will always outnumber, overshadow, and overcome

hatred feels thick,
and noisy,
like it imposes and takes up space,
but i have to believe it’s just the absence of things,
like an emptiness raging against itself,
that it’s no substance of power,
that it doesn’t get to make a permanent home,
that love could always fill that space,
and if those who are hellbent on hate
won’t grow, or change,
that awakened voices will bring revival
to this place

and that love will always
outnumber, overshadow, and overcome
