At His Bosom

by Tabitha N. Munyoki

Peace is born
Out of submission
Evidence of His presence
A release of the idea
That we may be in control
An acceptance
Of our fragility
Embedded within our
Potential to become
The highest version of ourselves
Birthed out of humility
An acceptance of His will
Brewed at the hands 
Of contentment
With the seasons therein
Let peace then
Burn from your bosom
Traversing the canvas of flesh
Until the tips of your fingers
Feel the warmth
Purchased by surrender.
