Week 13: Miracle

When on grazed knees
you sink
begging for a miracle

raise your eyes to the left
and see the people in your life
the random meetings in what
were billions of
statistical opportunities
yet you stumbled on this one
that holds your heart

if it was briefly

Raise your eyes to the right
and see that all you ever needed
has been there for you
even when you couldn’t see it
the earth
has never withdrawn her support

Look inward and notice
when you breathe
that tiny
of nothingness
as you breathe out
your body decides
to breathe in again
and that each morning you awake
with a clean slate
to break the patterns
of your self-created incarceration

You too are the flower
that chose to bloom
in the only chink
within the concrete

and you think you need a miracle
