How to

How to fit suffering into a poem

There’s no hand book on how to grieve

Each with our own process

In this game of dare or dare

one prescription we all share

We get a choice

Feel through it… or suppress the voice

So this one is for the

brave & broken-hearted

Those who posess the courage to step in, fully aware they’ll never be the same again.

Suffering has a way

of taking up the entire room

Accompanied by an overwhelming

sense of doom

At times we feel the need to hide

As we beg God to take us from this ride

Denial:

this isnt happening, no way,

not to me….

Must remain calm, that’s the key.

Anger:

how could this happen?

Is the world really this cruel?

I thought I was the exception to the rule ..

Such a fool.

Bargaining:

My unsettling friend Hope is here, the unwanted beggar hiding behind my fear.

Depression:

Where is my will to live?

Will I ever forgive ?

Forgive

Forgive

Forgive him… her…

Myself

Acceptance:

Grace grabs hold of my hand & gently guides me to stand.

“Write about it,” she says…

Undress your vulnerability &

shine a light on your fear

Maybe another will hear

& you’ll get to be their Grace

As you fold time & space

& show those who ache

they aren’t alone

There

is

always

a way back
