The Churn

rough-around-the-edges

unedited, human truth

spotless imperfection

brokenness makes whole

understanding born from toil and pain

that to love means to embrace

who we are when no one is looking

the aches, the burn of realization,

stinging grief and blasts of joy

remind us that we are alive

satisfaction is a breath away

when in a moment

we can pause to acknowledge

that the churning is not in vain

for in life, even with all its woes

we can become all we are meant to be

vessels of God’s promise

and light along another’s path
