Poetic Journey in Personal Discovery

Dear Angela,

I’m so sorry you are hurting
I’m sorry you feel so alone
Like all around you is crumbling
And you’ve no place to call your home

Independence seems lost
Simply a distant memory
One which taunts your wakeful mind
And haunts your sleep-strained dreams

You stand in your pit looking upward
Squinting to see if it’s still there
Wondering where it all has gone
Why you’re so empty and your hope’s so bare

Feeling broken, bruised and battered
Your tears cause the rivers to thirst
The journey has led you to the harsh and barren
In despair, fear, and sorrow you are immersed

Unsure of the next right step
So many questions drifting inside
Too many to sift and weave
Hearing muffled answers and suspicious replies

Your faith is strong, yet feels lacking
At times doubt overpowers blind belief
You know God’s carrying you and holds your hand
But you can’t convince your heart not to bleed

One foot in front of the other my friend
You’re stronger than you know
I see you walking through the fire
And coming out refined and whole
I see you encouraging others with your faith
I see your light free from hiding, bright as the noon-day sun
I see you sharing your strength and hope
I see you inspiring the hurting and undone
I feel the warmth emanating from within you
I hear the wisdom that you’ve gained
I see the passion and fire in your eyes
I recognize confidence you thought had gone astray

We cannot know for sure
The outcome of these trials
Hold on although your grip feels uncertain
Know God’s with you all the while

Your rainbow of hope shines inside
The struggle will lead you back to you
Continue to gift the world with your beauty
On this journey of discovery and truth

You are loved,

Elizabeth
