My heart is broke, not working.
Under attack, from within;
Relentless pain and confusion reign
As slowly clarity emerges.

What happened to me?
Did I do this?
My God, my God, why?
But. Wait. Spirit is present,
As slowly calm emerges.

Life is present.
Wholeness preserved.
Friends are present speaking prayers,
Speaking love
As slowly comfort emerges.

Plans have changed.
Life is reborn and saved.
Anxiety, fear, future and hope–
As slowly a new day emerges.
