Fierce grace 2 – a villanelle

FIERCE GRACE

Do not be afraid of the fierceness of Grace

As she razes your house to the ground

She comes to reveal your original face.

 

As you blink back tears in this strange, new place

She will not leave you where you were found

Do not be afraid of the fierceness of Grace

 

She comes to teach life is not a race

No winners or losers on this holy ground

She comes to reveal your original face.

 

She breaks you down, she slows your pace

Frees you where you were bound

Do not be afraid of the fierceness of Grace

 

And in Her silence, you will find the space

Where peace and joy abound

She comes to reveal your original face.

 

Until, at last, there is no trace

No you, no Her, newfound

Do not be afraid of the fierceness of Grace

She came to reveal your original face.
