A Place (I Am)

A Place (I Am)helen sunset wm 2

There is a place inside of me
that is still and silent.
The place feels safe.
The place feels calming.
The place deflates my tension.
My ego thoughts float away
and I am left with
the I am that I am.
Tears fill my eyes
their droplets tap my chest.
The comfort in this place
reminds me I am loved,
reminds me I am the child
in whom God is well pleased.
I am humbled.
I am exalted.
I am the I am that I am.

    1. Some poems I write feel a scary bit personal to share publically, and this one was on the cusp. Thank you for coming over, Pete. I appreciate it, and your comment.


    1. Thank you, Maggie. Sometimes I speak it out loud like a prayer. It helps to relax me when I’ve been stressed. Thank you for visiting my blog and commenting.
