just three things

I want to understand the power in silence
then my gushing river of words
might instead refresh like a gentle stream

I want to understand your faith
then my faith that I claim is strong enough to move mountains
might instead be felt through our embrace

I want to understand sacrifice
then my obsession with the figure in the mirror
might instead reflect deep truth in the words, "I care"

I want to understand trust
then the past that I've worn like old prescriptions
might instead be replaced so I can focus ahead

I want to understand that understanding has it's own limit
then my understanding that is incomplete
might instead wait with fervor for a Completeness

I want to understand that until that Completeness
then I must commit to do three things:
trust steadily, hope unswervingly, and love extravagantly
