Out of the Depths
Out of the depths of sorrow and sadness,
Where wave crashes over relentless wave,
And the air hangs weighty and dense.
Out of the depths of failures,
Where lies, like weeds, threaten to
Bind me forever to this moment.
Out of the depths of grief and loss,
An endless sea of nothingness,
Only the whisper of what could have been.
Out of the depths of frustration and anger,
Where hurt burns deep and throbbing,
And inner voices scream, "Enough!"
Out of the depths of shame,
Where my foolish choices taunt me and
Threaten to define who I am.
Out of the depths I cry to you, O Lord.
Let You ears hear, Your hand reach,
And your unending mercy redeem.
