    This Mess

    August 29, 2018

    Another carelessly, carefully hidden mess has spilled out onto the floor

    And it's a pain I have never felt before 


    Your pain I have never felt before


    I shudder at the thought of the moment when innocence broke

    When it turned inside-out at the blasphemous words the one you trusted spoke

    I shudder at the heaviness you carried

    the memories you buried

    and the silence you had no choice but to choose

    Please believe that amidst the shame and fear, your Mother held you near


    To all those who know--who knew--that the scourge lays waste at noon: what did you do?

    Did you not perceive the weight of a single soul?

    Did you not think your insidious razor of silence would reach bone?

    Because it did, and now that's broken too, and we're all looking at you


    Oh God, take this mess

    Take this mess of dark and death

    and help us sift out all the light again
