What does mercy look like? Feel like? Take a moment to read this inspiring short poem that reminds us what mercy does so that we can be more merciful to ourselves and to others.
By Elizabeth Cunningham
There is a mercy in the tides
they come and go
they make new again
they bear no malice
towards the wreckage they toss or take.
If they are not mercy
they remind us of mercy.
They show us mercy’s face.
