In Silence


I feel it coming
the tide rolls back.
Then the wave comes crashing
causing panic and shock.
I want to breathe
I'm drowning in fear.
The pain and sorrow
are all I can hear.
A glimmer of hope
a slight moment of relief.
Then the world seems to laugh
and push me back to my knees.
It's here that I find it
with my back to a wall.
The only way out
is to look up and call.
I've done everything wrong
I've sinned and I've doubted.
But despite my failures
He offers mercy and kindness.
The fear is still there
and I have to fight it.
But in the back of my mind
God holds peace in silence.
