Today I am frail but undaunted
Afraid but not faithless
Uncertain but ever hopeful
In the face of this great, overwhelming unknown.
In our suffering there is resilience
Gratitude for each tiny step of progress
Relief in the warmth of human spirit
Looking upward, always, for traces of light.
To live at all, is to face the terror of vast unknown
Willingly risking our hearts to human experience
Stoically bearing the storms as they downpour
Keeping our chins high, our faith strong.
If we are suffering, we are not alone in our struggle
Collectively experiencing the worry of the world
As these heavy days pass by, one-by-one
Turning our eyes toward a greater source
For hope, and healing, and better days.
