There is so much fear, I can smell it.
Fear is in my friends
Fear is in my culture
Reflecting back to me the fear in my own heart.
That I will not be loved, that I will not be forgiven.
Yet deeper, beyond the fear, is the small smile, the patient knowing,
Of who I really AM.
I am the universe
And one with all things.
One with God.
Perfect, limitless love incarnate.
This light that I am, shines into the dark corners where fear lives
With loving acknowledgement,
And with a rush of truth, something opens inside me and becomes healed.
