In the hopelessness of today, I bow in prayer
Seeking refuge from this dull pain in my chest
Laying my forehead on the ground, thinking of being reduced to such low levels
And yet rising up, high, in the eyes of God
I am not deeply religious, but today I seek something from Him
Respite? Some assurance that the darkness will go away?
I fold my hands, and tears appear
Are they mine?
I bowed down in front of God, please relieve me of this pain
When I rose, I was alone, as alone as a withered rose in Autumn
Light was out, and I was in the dark.
Waiting for an answer, waiting for him.
