POETRY | Through Deep Darkness

Through Deep Darkness

Faithless and formless

A void of convictions

Conflicting within us

We ask not and have not

 

While waiting to see

What we cannot

Because we planted not

We harvest our vanities

 

Supplanting me

Inspiring and tiring

Failing and flailing without feeling

All the pain and the suffering

 

Don’t waste me

Wait for me

Let it be

A story beginning

 

Transplant and transport me

Don’t abort me

I’m watching and waiting

To see what I cannot see

 

Nothing surrounds me

Save the sound of

The falling leaves and their trees

In the stillness

 

They are falling (inside me)

Voices silenced and sighing

So tired of

The trying

 

Perfect me, re-create me

Oh let me be

Alive not abandoned

By the roadside of greed

 

Transfixed and trembling

I plead for your mercy

Father forgive me

I know what I’m doing

 

Faithless and fearless

I marked all my milestones

Like millstones   they’re dragging me

Down dark deep as the sea bottomless eternity

 

Stargazers stillness

You feel for the helpless

Forgotten and friendless

Salvation is endless

 

“Father forgive them”

You know what we’re thinking

Forgetting to listen

We deserve what we don’t get

 

Fathomless sinking

Star grasping relentless

Your truth watches over

The song of the hopeless

 

Faith, Hope and Love

You have granted and handed

But the greatest of these

We’ve abandoned

 

Still watching and waiting

You win with your mercy

While whispering love songs

To the ears of the half-deaf
