Heart Garden

Updated: Feb 9, 2022

My mother tongue is Korean and I wrote a prayer/poem in Korean - about what's been on my heart. I did my best to translate it into English for your reading. Hope it uplifts your heart.

황량한 계절보다

황량한 마음이

더 심각한 문제임을

이제서야 깨닫게 되었습니다.

황량한 세상 속에서도,

황량한 상황 가운데에도,

꽃이 피고,

열매 맺는,

마음의 정원을

가꾸어 나갈수 있는

삶을 살고자 합니다.


제게 오셔서

이 황량한 마음을



채워 주소서.

- "마음 정원" by 정찬미


More than the barren seasons,

the barren heart -

I came to realize

is a deeper problem.

Even in the midst of the dry, barren world,

even in the midst of devastating circumstances,

I desire

to tend a heart garden

that blooms,

that fails not to bear fruits.


Come to me,

to my barren garden,

till it,

fill it,

and change it

into the life-bearing garden

you desire.
