Two Poems for The Day


Two Poems for The Day

The One Thing That Happened and the Billion Things That Never Happened

I am open mouthed
A hole
So wide
I could swallow the world

Everything taken
Given up
To God

I can only sit here
Mercy surrounds me in every breath

What I can never understand?

The impossibility of my life.
Nothing protected me from this.
All I can say
Is I love you
