When it seems we’re going under…

Images of suffering

searing the brain.

Search for relief

but, all in vain

~~~~

A colleague lost,

his church decimated.

The anguish that’s felt

can’t be over-stated

~~~~

Friend wrestles cancer

beyond human aid

Wife & young children,

confused and dismayed

~~~~

A known hostage taken,

terror’s sick silence.

To those at home waiting

doesn’t make any sense

~~~~

And all leaves one wondering

Just who’s at the helm

As calamity threatens

to quite overwhelm

~~~~

Please, lead to that Rock

so much higher than I.

A refuge in need

My helper: draw nigh
