Waking: A Short Poem

Oh, gentle hope–

You reached down with

a grasp of mercy

and brought me up

to ride back upon the waves;

From the pit

of desperation,

and breaking,

your light

shone into the midnight

of my heart

and broke me free

from the chains

of sleep

to awaken in the arms

of freedom…
