The Windows of My Soul: Attempt (#88)

Attempt (#88)
© Brenda
December 27, 1972

There was a time
It was deep
Coping became too much
Falling so easy.
Losing faith
In an unknown deity
Was as nothing
Compared
To losing faith
With myself.

The further the fall
The more accustomed
To not caring
I became.
And so,
When the bottom
Rose up
And slammed me,
Hard!
It was a shock.

It is a very
Long way
Back up
To the edge.
But when
I tried
I succeeded.
The welcome
All around me
Made me smile.

Then came
The day
I did not
Reckon.
The tears are
Silent.
“Forgive me, God.”
Then, suddenly
All around me
Angels singing.
