Who I Am


“To say that I am made in the image of God is to say that love is the reason for my existence, for God is love. Love is my true identity. Selflessness is my true self. Love is my true character. Love is my name.” Thomas Merton. New Seeds of Contemplation

Through bone-wrapped eyes, through murky vitreous,
through matter grey, lightning emotions flying
at the speed of light through my
tunnel vision, I focused on what was
just beyond the
end of my

I did not create that small voice
singing sweetly in
my ringing

but just before dawn, fingers numb,
hair disordered by the
western breeze
to Your love,

I heard Your voice!

Now the warmth of morning
cradles me
open hands.

Now I know
who I am.
