Precipice

Just another poem from that old project I'd made. About a big event in my life, and a turning point in my faith. The form is a Pantoum, I do believe.

The day was never long enough

I walked another lap around my life

Even in the rain, I had to get out

Bad weather or no, I needed to breathe.

 

I walked another lap around my life

I remember falling in the snow, so heavy

Bad weather or no, I needed to breathe

But I couldn't, not this time.  I was afraid.

 

So I remember falling in the snow, heavy,

Tired, done; I remember trying to ask again

But I couldn't, not this time. I was afraid

Too afraid I'd been forgotten, forsaken.

 

Tired, done; I remember trying to ask again

To pray for strength, wisdom, hope, forgiveness

Too afraid I'd been forgotten, forsaken;

But I couldn't even stand.  I cried...

 

To pray for strength, wisdom, hope, forgiveness

None of it worked.  I felt forever lost in the snow

I couldn't even stand, but I cried

Out for any help or hope I had left

 

None of it worked.  I felt forever lost in the snow

Of a life just as silent, cold, and fragile; reaching

Out for any help or hope I had left

I found it, not in God, but in myself.

The End
