YOU

You are a wild and gleeful thing,
nudged by lavish grace
towards all the astonishments,
and nothing can stop it
or you.

You are not a mistake.
The earth aches for your singular life,
for the miracle radiance
of purely, specifically
you.

The shakings and the dark noises
of a man-made world
cannot compete with your hallelujah blood,
your hosanna spirit,
or with the gentle fury of hope.

+ Gideon Heugh, in Devastating Beauty

Sharing this profoundly beautiful poem again today for all of us who need reminding of who we are.
