Where Do I Dwell?



 Where do I dwell?


In anger,

in forgiveness,

in peace,

in privilege,

in emptiness,

in stories,

in my house,

in love,

in confusion,

How can I be dwelling in so many places?


Where do I not dwell? In all the places where I’ve not been…

and not heard about. And in all those places I’ve rejected.


I wish to dwell in those places as well for they keep me alive

even as I reject them.


Or could I just dwell in mindfulness… and in no place else.


What would that look like?


How would that feel?


Who would be there to greet me? Me?
