MY SOUL SIGH AND LAMENT - JUNE 24, 2021
I am done.
I am undone.
Why, Oh why the repetition.
Why do I feel there is no answer to my repetitive petition
Like a splinter in my soul that I can't pick out
I erupt from the pain sometimes through my mouth
Hope seems delayed - feeling like denial
Tired of the mask that hides disgraceful betrayal
You can lift us up to be the Image before the world's foundations
Even if there is not a change to the world's situations
I put my life on Your altar and say
Consume the excess, refine and renew my grief
and collect the ashes from my prayer releasing relief
