This Too Shall Pass

This Too Shall Pass


This too shall pass


This daunting impasse


A place so well-known from before


Alone and bereaved


Collapsed and aggrieved


Crushed through to the core


Heart so shattered


Spirit so battered


Broken to fragments again


Soul so weary


Tomorrows so dreary


Life with despair as its bane


Tomorrow will come


Perhaps with the sun


But home is in the cocoon


Here in this nest


Spirit at wrest


Here where the shadows are hewn


The days will pass


As sorrows amass 


But eventually comes tomorrow


Door I held closed


Now exposed


The Lord waiting to comfort this sorrow

    • I think you will find the message. God has a way of speaking to each of us as we need to hear it. The message I wrote which comes from my experience is probably different than everybody who reads it. I hope that it speaks to you, and that the message is pertaining to something important to you. 😊


      • When I was younger in age, and faith walk, I used to hate it when folks would tell me, “this too shall pass”–but now that God has brought me through lots of “this’s”, the phrase means so much more–it rings with truth that God will hold our hands and our hearts until the “this” does indeed pass. He is so faithful in His love towards us–and today the darkness has lifted enough that I can praise Him without gritting my teeth. You are always in my prayers–thank you for being here. God bless you.


        • 🙂 What a lovely comment to read. Age does give us wisdom.. but it is through passing through the harder times that we learn to trust that God will bring us through, that we will see the lesson some day and that there is always some reason.
          Bless you very much! ❤
