come forth

The bible tells us that Jesus resurrected Lazarus from the dead. Think on your life when you were made to feel less, like nothing. Dead. What brought you back? Love? God? A therapist? A friend? What gives us the will to live when life is at its darkest?

Please listen to this inspired and uplifting narration by the sublime Simon Howard on Twitter.


  1. This made me think of a time 6 years ago, when I went to see a counsellor about my life and failing marriage. She asked me to choose two items from a bowl of pretty shells, colourful stones and plain pebbles. I chose the pebbles, as I was feeling full of despair and wanted a better life. She made me see, she opened my eyes. I will always be eternally grateful to her. This poem speaks volumes to me.

  2. Fabulous poem that touches on that dark side of emptiness and then makes you feel whole. Been in that empty place before…not a pleasant place to be…
