Grace…..

Grace
She takes the blame
She covers the shame
Removes the stain
It could be her name

Grace
It’s a name for a girl
It’s also a thought that changed the world
And when she walks on the street
You can hear the strings
Grace finds goodness in everything

Grace, she’s got the walk
Not on a ramp or on chalk
She’s got the time to talk
She travels outside of karma
She travels outside of karma
When she goes to work
You can hear her strings
Grace finds beauty in everything

Grace, she carries a world on her hips
No champagne flute for her lips
No twirls or skips between her fingertips
She carries a pearl in perfect condition

What once was hurt
What once was friction
What left a mark
No longer stings
Because grace makes beauty
Out of ugly things

Grace makes beauty out of ugly things

  2. My friend sent this to me saying that is described me exactly. I was really touched that she thinks about me like this. It made me tear up a little bit cause she did have a little messed up past. I’m glad to know that I helped her out. šŸ™‚

    This is a beautiful poem! Absolutely wonderful!

  3. Glad you liked it Grace. It’s written by Bono and on the All That You Can’t Leave Behind Album. It’s a great song.
