grief….

this grief has torn my heart

shaken my soul,

the core of me is quaking,

crying no, NO,

no more….

+

while a cynical side to me says

it is not yours, you cannot claim it,

you have no right to pain and tears….

+

and yet they come,

there is too much horror in our days,

too many lost,

hearts broken,

lives never the same,

be it the many, or the one,

I cry out in grief

until that cry becomes a prayer,

this grief is mine,

for we are all connected,

all affected,

all flesh and blood and bone

and weeping…..

+

there is a place in God’s heart where tears don’t stop,

where cries for healing and justice echo day and night….

for now this is my dwelling place

About Sally C

How do I describe myself, I am not what I do, (I am a Methodist Minister), I am not who I am related to (I have 5 wonderful children, and 2 lovely granddaughters). I am a seeker truth, a partaker of life in all it's fullness and a follower, sometimes stumbling, sometimes celebrating of the Christian pathway. I seek wholeness, joy and a connectedness to all things through a deep reconciliation with the God whose love blows my socks off!
