The beauty of grace is that it make life not fair.

On this side
What is revealed is all
What is known is nothing

On this side
Where red is the reality
Where brokenness is permanent

On this side
Fear is just taking root
Fear is just seeping through

On this side
The breach is made
The breach is lethal

On this side
When we feel the cracks, our fingers shake
When we see the dark, our hearts fall faint

On this side
There is now bitterness
There is now a lasting taste of contradiction

On this side
We have learned to guard
We have learned to stay

I composed this with the image of a brick wall, keeping two sides apart...until the mortar cracks.
