Poem: Black Hole/Faith

Ah, the inner battles that the mind plays out ...


Black Hole


Black hole abounding
Silence confounding
Can’t reach the distance
‘Spite all persistence
Space masks a raging
No calmed assuaging
Borne of a chilling
Emptiness filling


Faith

Hope in submission
Trusting the mission
God’s will is turning
Each day brings learning
Can’t know His meaning
Faith bares redeeming
Time can show glory
Unfinished story

I like the circular motion these poems create through rhyme, line length, and meaning. How they seem to orbit around each other!

Yes! My goal was to make reflective poems that could show the inner struggle, in this case, between feeling hopeless and having a sense that things can work out if we believe.
