I see the fire in the sky,

closing in on earth.

your palms, so full of rage

and thunder

grip decaying dreams.

you shake your fists at the sky,

and wait.




the word, like poison,

does nothing for the anger.

inexplicable, bound here,


and terrified.




perhaps there is nothing I can say.

perhaps I am nothing, after all,

no cooling balm,

no antidote.

Perhaps all I can do

is hold you scorching palm in mine

and whisper, in my heart,

“I hope you find Him someday.”


One thought on “lost

  1. Praying for them to find Him someday….so true! We may not be the “hero” we want to be, but showing the true love of God and praying for them shines for Him. Thanks for sharing this, Mary! A reminder of what those who do not know the Father are going through. Let us show them the compassion of Him! Hope you are doing well! šŸ™‚
