Hope of Ages

I’m tired today
My thoughts are slow and labored
A noticeable crack runs through hopeful veneer
that has worn a bit thin this week
I know others who are tired and hurting
Perhaps an entwining of being
transcends the expanse of miles
bringing a universally empathic yawn
from who knows where
An echoing moan of oh crap
resounding from sun up to sun up
or the deafening sound of
tears falling all through the long nights
when sun downs in some towns
bring the jagged edge of cold and darkness
too close to flesh and blood
One flesh
One blood
Flesh of our flesh
Blood of our blood
We hurt we gripe and moan
We go on
Such is the beauty of hope
regardless of how thin it becomes but
Father please send the winds of your spirit
to scatter the seeds of hope
upon the soil of those hearts
who’ve never known You
The hope of ages

Searching high and low no matter where i go it always seems the same: shades of grey. Or, was that gray?

    By the way, "A noticeable crack runs through hopeful veneer" is a splendid line. I wish I had written it!
