Poem: Meditation-When despair wrenches the soul

When despair wrenches the soul and the heart is torn with grief;
when the dark night is long and the hours are filled with fear;
when anxieties prevent sleep and crying out to God seems to bring no answer,
what is there to lift that sense of desolation?

Is there courage to turn from pain to think of that of others?
Not always.
Is there determination to put anxiety away and face the future boldly?
Perhaps not.
