The Sun Shines Best Through the Cracks

Thanks to POTSC for sharing this poem of grace

“THE PEOPLE OF THE SECOND CHANCES”

We are the ones
who’ve messed up and stressed out
and held doubt in our mouths like
a lozenge, relishing its acrid memory.

We have saidseendone things
no one would believe
past lives laid behind us
like some twisted black magic carpet
that somehow still led us here.

We have been
found
and we abound with an inexpressible
joy that can only come from being
rescued
pursued
adored.

We are the ones
who know what it’s like to be loved
anyway
regardless
still
in spite of
completely
without limits.

We know grace
is amazing
and forgiveness
is free
and none of it’s easy
but it sure beats going back.

We know that the heart
is a fragile and resilient
vessel
and that the sun shines
best
through the cracks.
