Wanting Love (or, Fear… Fatherward)

June 9, 2015


Our heads hurt.
What’s there’s not here,
Because we
Never thought

What we wanted
Was fear
-To be feared-

But with respect
We’re hurting now
We see:

(Our dust is cleared)
Love’s running
Like the Dad He’ll always be.

“And he arose and came to his father. But while he was still a long way off, his father saw him and felt compassion, and ran and embraced him and kissed him.”
Luke 15:20
