The deepest place where peace resides is found in you.
Plunge through the depths to the center of it in order
To find God waiting for you. Martha and Mary have
Yet to make the journey in the story of Lazarus' raising.
Instead they accuse Jesus of not coming soon enough.
Peace falls away into the inner struggle of grief.
They too were unbound with their brothers rising.
We too can unwind ourselves and take the plunge
To our hearts center and core, finding the deep love
Of God if we just take the time to be still and pierce
The veil which divides us from it. Through worry and
Pain, through grief and fear, through confusion and sorrow.
Remember the times of inner stirrings where for a moment
All is at rest within and you see the beauty of the stars
Tiny yet piercing through the canopy of darkness with light.
