being real

real…
not fake
authentic
genuine
trustworthy
actual
sincere…

in a stable
stinky
not at all sterile

born this day
natural birth
crying
covered in mucus
breathing His first breath

eyes
fingers
toes
tiny hands…
the hands that will be pierced
the eyes that will see the “not realness” in me
the toes and feet that will walk the path that I am to follow
the hands…

the realness…
the authenticity…
the sincerity…
the love…

Don’t turn me into memory or myth
Let me be real, real
And I’ll show you what it means to love like this – Nichole Nordeman, Real

the tiny hands…
that will be a filter through which all things will pass…
the fingerprints…
that will touch every inch of things to happen…
the strength…
the warmth…
the security..
the comfort…
the realness.

Real isn’t how you are made,” said the Skin Horse. “It’s a thing that happens to you. – the Velveteen Rabbit

o…
that I may be real.

real grace…
