When Striving Is Ended - Poem by Liilia Talts Morrison

When striving is ended
And safety upended
Dream segments are blended
Frail sanity rended
All chores left untended
Hope quickly suspended
Suffering untended

Till the final ending
From a hidden bending
Brightest angels tending
Whose life was appalling
Lazarus attending

At the Master’s bidding
Clean salvation bringing
Like a north star shining
At his feet reclining.
