Choking Back Tears by @MrCoppola

Updated: Apr 12, 2020

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.
