Someone Different

She glows...
with a beauty I
cannot explain.
She smiles...
and it's like the
sun shines through.
She laughs...
and the sound is
like ocean-spray.
She whispers...
and I hear the
whistling wind.

Where does she find her
Why does nothing seem to
touch her?
Why is she not
She is unmarred
by the opinions of
the world, she loves
to love and hates
Why is she so

Yet, there...
in her face I see
a trace of sorrow...
The sea-blue of her
eyes hold deeper
meaning than first glance.
She is touched with pain.
Suffering has been hers.
And up again
she has risen—
by some power beyond
our own
I cannot understand.

Then I see her
walking on the
sandy shores...
He is with her.
He is breathing into her,
molding her
and making her
what nothing can compare.
Her body,
rests on His arms—
He upholds her.
He is radiant...
His light is
His face is
She looks to Him,
humbled in her state of
He reaches down
gracious and
She has died...
He has made her

In Him.

Her laughter is...
full of
Her smile is...
Her whisper is...
Her heart is...
Her life is...

I love this so so much. THIS is what I strive to reflect in my life. Thank you for capturing this beautiful womanhood so perfectly.
May I ask if there is a particular person you are writing about?

I don’t thrive off of chaos: chaos thrives off of me.

I thought of Johanna when I was reading this.
I’m honestly floored that you were thinking of me. Thank you. <3 I feel very blessed, and humbled.

Libby your poetry is always so amazing!! I absolutely love it. Muy bien, mi amiga! Another wonderful piece! My favorite lines were,
“She laughs...
and the sound is
like ocean-spray.”


“She has died...
He has made her alive.

In Him.”

Damaris, I've read your story and it blows me away every time I think about it. I am so blessed to know you and it's so neat to watch as you rest in the Lord through your struggles. You are an awesome friend and I am blessed to know you. :)

Heather, aw, thank you so much! :) You make me so happy! Thank you!

Libby this was so good! It captures exactly what God does for us! I think my favorite part was probably where it just simply said "In Him". The way you put that in there was so powerful! Beautiful writing!
