catholic poetry room This week’s poem in the Catholic Poetry Room is by Ogonna Kanu.

(in honor of the Blessed Sacrament)

I leave all outside
To draw into Your presence
Somewhat unsure
Somewhat confident
I lean my head
On your chest
To whisper
And feel the soft caress of grace
Here, I am

I sit still
Savoring sweet seconds
In the pleasure of knowing
Your gaze upon me
Unveil the lies
Behind my eyes
Your listening ear
Won’t doubt my heart
I am like this
With no one else

As I came
I slip away quiet
Merge into life’s whirlwind
Within I carry that touch
Lose weariness
Bury the debris of discontent
And reclaim the soothing of peace
Again I wander the earth…
