How much brokenness must I have

To find the solitude I need

For the silence to heed

The darkness?


Why doesn’t the silence hold

Enough peace to overcome

The darkness of the isolation

Of the solitude?


How long must I wait

For the convergence to occur

Of solitude, darkness and peace?


Such that the silence that is born

Is a joyful exclamation

Of the faith and the hope

Of the Christ;


Where all the brokenness is mended

In the wholeness of the Spirit

That is denied in the darkness

Of the isolation.


What a world without brokenness

Solitude or darkness

Silence or Jesus or death!
