I Am Not Dante #5: You Are Home

Amy Grace Lam


Take off your shoes, your coat, and rest.
There is no more searching to be done.
You are home now.

Just rest, wandering friend.
You have made your way home.
You have walked enough.
Cried enough.
Seen enough.

It is time to plant.
Plant a tree.
Name it as yours.
Water it everyday.
Pray to it everyday.
Sit with it everyday.

And lay in the arms of the Beloved.
Sing His praises.
Touch the feet of the earth.
Dance to the sky.
Laugh with the wind.

And love.
For you are home.
