Healing

Broken dreams
And shattered hearts.
What hope can pierce the gloom?
Can the flower of forgiveness
Open to full bloom?

Ruined lives,
Dark memories,
Scenes that hate has painted.
Can the future generations
Arise untainted?

Healing words,
Hearts full of love,
Amid the deep despair.
Light-bearers with lives of truth
Bring forgiveness there.

  1. I really like it. I feel like most people (self included) have a hard time writing about God without sounding cheesy. You do it beautifully.

  2. Thank you! I will confess that quite a lot of my poetry, about God or not, strikes me as rather cheesy...some of it I post anyway, hoping for constructive criticism, and some of it I hide in deep, dark crevices.
