Footbridge of faith

“Faith is a footbridge that you don’t know will hold you up over the chasm until you’re forced to walk out onto it.”
― Nicholas WolterstorffLament for a Son

footbridge of faith

When a dark swarm gathers,
debris is left in its wake,
lamentations of sorrow,
and soul shattering quakes!

A million shards
of substance,
are blasted into outer space.
I’m trying to reconfigure them,
and put them back in their place!

Brutal grief surges,
into the deepest parts,
I step into oblivion,
to reclaim my broken heart.
I’m ravaged
with weariness,
unbalanced and alone.
I’m persevering affliction,
as I make my journey home!

If I gaze into the sunlight,
will I find you there?
This ghastly separation
is more than I can bear!

A footbridge of faith
conveys me,
unharmed
to the other side.
Though, I must brave this dissonance,
from suffering I cannot hide!

Don’t pity this Earthling;
this is the resonance of grief,
deluges of desolation,
aching for relief!
