“Save me, O G-d; for the waters are come in even unto the soul.”
– Psalm 69:2, JPS 1917 Tanach
I will remain silent within my heart,
while gazing upon the adversity,
until words form from the depths
of my soul that can be spoken.
From within the heart words rise,
as close to life as they may sound,
only a distant glance remains,
as carried by these utterances.
A shattered life, broken dreams,
all re-arranged by a guiding hand
from above Who comforts my soul
during the Aftermath.
