The Waves Storm Around Me



The waves storm around me

Their fury, threatening

I feel the water

Its intensity, its depth

It reflects back upon me

So much!


I walked into the water

Not Directly

Rather

Through a back door

My fears demanded something

My heart adrift

I knew not a way

I knew not the way

I made a big mistake

Yet I hear peace

Amidst the turmoil

A voice speaks to me

Its answer is both

very clear

and

A total mystery


It is wrong,

So, so wrong

To drag the soul

Of Another 

Into the storm

With me


I wish

I’d seen the way

Had the courage

To fight the storm

Through attacking scissors

Rather than

Through piercing knives

That attacked in the sleep

I knew no other way


Now

I am facing the waves

Ever increasing

Because

I knew not the way

Nor had the strength

I had


There is a strange peace

Amidst the turmoil

I have hope….

Despite the furor

Despite my guilt

Despite my weak terror

I have created

That a just peace

Will result

Out of struggle


I do not deserve

What I hope to get

It can not just be me
It must include

The one I stabbed bitterly

Through the neck’s back


I’m sorry!
