Quite a piece of work to deal with
like a challenge in a game;
outraged by certain reactions
reveal the heart of being home,
true, human and vulnerable.
Perhaps it’s also a way to release
one’s anger in an open space,
walking briskly or without any thought
just a mere response – owning it
with creeping silence deep within.
Outdoor sports can help in any way,
a good safety valve to keep going;
with serenity and determination
that conquers evil in human reaction.
It’s coming to the fore – openness!
as another virtue to convey;
to live a life with so many wounds
will abound God’s grace to heal them all.
