“Thou hast laid me in the lowest pit, in darkness, in the deeps.”
The lonely soul,
departing a painful life,
clinging, clinging to the material world.
Wallowing in the sadness of a lifetime of turmoil and pain.
Finding faith elusive
in the cold heartless dark.
Failing to see the light,
just over there,
forgiving and pure.
Pausing in the extreme shame, sadness, regret
wondering if their Maker is waiting to rescue
testing the faith
of the lonely soul.
