Despair is the yawning chasm,
That swallows everything,
Its hunger is insatiable,
Devouring any goodness,
Destroying all hope.
Hope begins from my deepest despair,
Struggle birthed new possibilities,
My cries for help each night,
Were answered with a new dawn,
Remembering my youthful prayers
God’s love never forgets.
My daily longing is to hear God’s voice,
Learning to desire his will,
Knowing that failure is no longer possible,
My groans and tears heard,
Now, I live with complete confidence,
Each new step taken with the assurance,
That my path’s gifts belong to me.
