Sacred Wounds

It is through our sacred wounds
that the blood of our holiness flows.

Submerged near drowning in rivers of loss,
we may encounter the grace of baptisms
not possible in water.

Sanctified within dark chambers of anguish,
our souls undergo initiation
into far deeper life.

And at the altars of our despair,
as we offer up the cups of our tears,
we may find, newly resurrected,
the joyful fruits of our hearts.
