new creation

 

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new. 

2 Corinthians 5:17 (NIV)

 

 

 

 

New

 

Twelve years had taken their toll.

Money, dignity and hope

Evaporated

She found herself among the crowd, 

Carried along by clamour and crush.

She reached out

And through dust and tears

And knowing

Old things passed.

 

Even before the question

And the trembling silence

Possibility

Began to take shape in her heart.

But it was in words of

Tenderness

And peace

She realised

All things had become new.
