Pushing Through - Poem by Kelley Cain

Walking
Head down against the wind
Crying out
But my words are swept away.

Looking
For a more forgiving road
A path to hold back the gales
I seek but do not find.

Weeping
Hopeless tears, falling from haunted eyes
I hide my face from you
And offer you my mask.

Railing
With fists clenched and angry visage
Raised to Heaven
The rain mixes with my tears.

Asking
For respite, for healing, for peace
I cannot hear Your answer
My wails drown out the words.

Pausing
As the sweet sounds of angels speaking
Quells the tempest in my soul
Listen, child, listen.

Rejoicing
As the wind stops and I hear Him speak
Words of hope and of love
A promise that His daughter never walks unguarded

Smiling
With the warmth of Love Itself revealed
My stone heart now shattered,
I kick away the useless shards, and push through to the Sunlight.
