7.14.20 Beyond the Brink

There has been an edging darkness

a coming storm

that just

keeps

coming

Thick clouds spiral emotions that

pour and pound

persisting and insisting on pushing us

to a brink we can’t see beyond

to a reality we don’t recognize

Inconsistency is currency

as the powerful veil truth from the powerless

ever searching with blinded eyes

ever listening with deafened ears

eager to climb, to cling or comply

to anything that offers more

than the absence we’ve now intimately known

There has been an edging darkness

a coming storm

and it might keep coming

But The Light is still behind each laden cloud

and gilded margins become radiant sovereigns

when given their chance to rise

So whether or not you believe you can carry on –

Do

Whether or not you see the end –

Stay

If you can’t see … feel

If you can’t hear … imagine

Defy the ache and the ebb

with audacious joy

with ineffable hope

with resilient conviction

Until you wake to the glorious morning

after the storm

  1. Thank you. I needed this today. Love this:

    “So whether or not you believe you can carry on –

    Do

    Whether or not you see the end –

    Stay

    If you can’t see … feel

    If you can’t hear … imagine”

    I appreciate your hope for the brighter days.

  2. So beautifully written with words so true. Our hope through this storm and every other in life is by holding onto the Light and knowing that no matter how deep the pit, no matter how dark the night, Love is greater still and morning always comes. Always.
