Choking Back Tears by @MrCoppola

Updated: Apr 12

The day’s sun has gone down behind the mountains


A thunderous boom of compassion consumes my soul


Skies darken


Like fiery bolts of lightning, I see broken hearts flash before my eyes


The forgotten; the unseen; the abandoned


Like waves of mercy, my cries crash down in desperation


Choking back tears, I close my eyes and surrender to love filled whispers


Salty streams touch my lips


Stillness, silence, and fire


Darkness and waiting


And then a humble breath of hope enters like dawn’s breeze hovering over waters


A new day is coming


Undeserved grace shines its piercing rays of light onto my face


And by the smallest seeds of faith, mountains are moving


The taste of salt and choking back tears

Your favourite quote: "A man who has friends must himself be friendly,

But there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother." Psalms 18:24

Your one wish for the world: I wish we truly desired to listen to one another more than we desire to speak our truths.
