Religion Poem: Renewal

Posted: October 23, 2012 - 11:54am

My heart was somber, cheerless,

When dawn appeared today.

A damper on my spirit, like a shroud,

Engulfed the rays of God’s sun,

I was pensive and felt there was no one to care,

Today the garb of deep
depression

Was the mantle I would wear

Came this darkness
uninvited,

Dispossessing, peeling,
baring,

Bringing only gloom and shadows,

Stripping all pretense of caring,

Life going on all around me,

Thinking not of other’s pain.

Deep in this crater of
depression,

There’s room for no one in my domain.

Then the sun broke through the clouds, remolding,

Forming humble Friars kneeling.

Some bowed low, some arms uplifted,

All were to our God
appealing.

Reminded, I bowed low
before him,

No orphan I, with him to care.

My heart then sang in
exultation,

Now, his robe of peace I wear

EVELYN MCNULTA IS A NORTH AUGUSTA

RESIDENT.
