Can anything good come from here?
From us?
From me?
I looked at myself.
I searched the depths inside myself.
(Even tried to find you, too.)
I was pretty sure. It could not.
Not here.
Not in me.
Not from us.
But you said, come and see.
Get up.
Move around.
Walk along.
Journey ahead.
Take action.
Get going.
Look.
Observe.
Consider.
Notice.
Ask.
Watch.
Wonder.
Try.
Come and see.
Listen and understand.
Work and feel.
Follow and know.
The heavens have already been opened.
Here. Upon us. Through us.
(It just happened again.)
Even in me.
There IS good.
And things are happening.
Can’t we see?
Don’t we sense it?
Might we believe?
Can anything good come out of this place?
Can anything good come out of that you?
(even the you that is crafted in me.)
It already is.
And will be.
Come and see.

Amen.
