From Chaos to Grace

I was born from chaos,

a fire from ash and wishes.

It soon became apparent that my existence

was a contradiction

Because LIGHT was my name,

though from darkness

I came.  Sanity they called me,

though my brain

was insane.

My name, Serenity, never made sense to me.

They called me Hope, though I was a well

of negativity.

I never understood why they called me Joy,

Why they called me Silence when I heard

only noise.

But I found one day, written in blood,

A letter to my people, signed by Love.

He told them my name would no longer be,

But a different, new name would be given

to me.

So by Love’s power, my name

was changed.

Thus today I am known as

Daughter of Grace.
