We might be tempted to answer material wealth, but markets crash and homes foreclose.
We might be tempted to answer occupation, but bosses fire and firms let off.
We might be tempted to answer love, but partners pass and families meddle.
We might be tempted to answer death, but memory resurrects and love sustains.
Where is that cave, within which one may remain unshaken?
When we open to the world and lean into God's grace,
Life shakes with pain and passion
But we remain unshaken.
