Escape from Nothingness


Been ridiculed
esteem crushed
into fine rubble
standing up again
torture to the soul
picking up the pieces
not easy, takes time

A hand reached out
promise of salvation
shoulder to lean on
tears fell like rain
shedding the pain
with trembling knees
holding to that hope

The dark clouds
begin to be swept
by the wind of faith
tears drying up fast
the horizon opens up
spirit soaring up high
what was shattered
is becoming whole again
