Grace Transforms the Impossible

The Positive of Negative

by MA Nangini in The Beholden, 2001

In any kind of
     human degradation
as in
     hostage-taking provocations
     prisoners of war in detentions
     concentration of inhuman encampments 
     mental and emotional enslavements
     whatever the abusive variation
personal energy orientation
comes to an end
depleted  devastated 
unless rooted in Hope.

Then comes the cracking point:
     into the insanity spiral
     retaliate - allow violence full reign and strike back
     provoke the need for a public assassination
     become numbed by the whole experience in alienation
     "run into the wire" to die
work with the forces of devastation
as does the Author of Life
and transform the negative into positive
and have more of life.

And to have it more abundantly:

I listen
     from the holiest of inner spaces  
     and creativity unfurls
     cracks open the gift of insight
     for its meaning
     seeing with new eyes
     the world.

I feast
     on its meat and vein
     heart  marrow and kernel
     knowledge and understanding
     for energy re-organization
     in person
as in
    group, nation, global planet
    micro-macro places of being in unison:

The work of Grace.
