we are all made of water.
it’s okay to rage. sometimes
it’s okay to rest. to recede.”
// Sanober Khan
I am weary and heavy hearted. Strong waves pull me down underwater and I struggle to breathe. The fight inside of me rages though I beg for mercy, beg for silence. Tears stream down my face as I break, unable to contain the war within. So much pain for such a small body.
I collapse in a grieving heap at Your feet. The only place I find comfort, the only One I know how to trust.
“Rockabye baby come and rest
You’ve been tired lately
Lay your head down
Don’t you think baby I know best?
I’ve been a Father for a long time.”
Grace! I need grace for this journey. Please.
