My roots dig down to the depths of my grief.
I have blood in the soil here now.
I have committed my earthen peace
I have swallowed oceans of sorrow until I drown
But that first fresh breath of holy air
that first hint of growing comfort
The absolute trust in knowing living love
Is beyond priceless to my clandestine spirit
I welcome the shift from despair to hope
I am open to the changes in my life
