The voice of One drones on in the background
deep reverberations felt through her shoulders
her head falls forward and her eyes do close
as tears burn a pathway down soft cheeks.
Her mind pushes through dark waves of memories
and her heart once numb, tightens in her chest
Deep stabbing pain courses through her spirit
As the voice of One convicts her lovingly.
She tries to hide behind closed eyes
but the reflection she sees is truth revealed
A river of pain and remorse and sorrow
flow out from her in wrenching sobs.
She cannot deny the truth, confessing brokenly,
in exhaustion she kneels, her palms uplifted
reaching for a sliver of hope in her darkness
knowing she deserves it not.
And in her submission, the Word embraces
flooding her darkness with light and peace
She raises tear drenched eyes to heaven
accepting the undeserved treasure.
