Poetry: Walls of Grace

By Monica C. Voskamp

 

Inside these walls I stand.

Inside these walls I can

Let down my guard.

Inside these walls I find 

I am safe.

 

Inside these walls

I can smile.

Inside these walls I relax.

Inside these walls

I am free.

 

I’m free to be, to cry.

I’m  free to stay,  to leave

Grace is this grounding

Grace is this healing

Grace is this generous

Free.

 

I’m free in this space

As me,

No one else.

No pretending, no defending.

No striving, no expecting.

No nothing.

Just vulnerably beautifully

Sweetly me

In arms of grace. 

 

Inside these walls I find peace.

Inside these walls

I breathe Serenity.

Inside these walls

Surrounding you and me,

I’m in.

I’m free.

I’m me.

 

Inside these walls, I rest

I finally breathe.

Inside these walls I have found

My safe.

Inside these walls,

Walls of grace.

 

Always believe. Always hope. Always love. 💕
