Poem slightly inspired by the story of the Mount of Transfiguration.
Early morning Got up to rest Away from the stress Alone with myself
Pressure from all sides Heaviness within Tiredness in face Sorrow in heart
Would rather escape This pain arising Too much to handle Too much to care
Sipping my coffe Clearing my mind Still ready to give up No desire to drink this cup
Alone with The Alone Here I am again Forgotten my way Yet the I Am is here
Trust in spite of pain When death feels like freedom That Love soon again Will shine like the Son
