Looking Upward

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.
