To My Yahweh

Cover Image

Sustain my heart.

As it tumbles,

Tossed upon the shores

Thoughts engulfed

Remaining obedient.


Each throb, held in your palm

Each rhythm harmonized


Forge my heart,

Pursue and grasp

Crevices traced with your finger

Fissures, leafed in gold

Iron made soft


Each moment precast, the image planned.

Each day lined by faith.


Surrender my heart

Relinquishing the fragmented

Pieces lay scattered

Bind them in love

Stitched through scars


Each broken piece, filled by light through the cracks in your hands

Each shadow cast a mark, a peace of grace.
