We are not Broken

I believe with complete belief in the coming of Mashiach

Though I’m devastated
And I’m outraged.
I’m scared
and I’m furious
I’m shaken
but I’m so hopeful
I need to see
but I can’t look
I’m exhausted
yet I can’t sleep
I should eat.
I can’t eat.

And even though he may tarry

It can’t be real
It’s all too real
It can NOT be real
I can’t comprehend the evil
Time is flying
Time is crawling
I need to do something but
I can’t function
So much time on my hands but
I can’t get anything done.
I’m strong but
I can’t handle this

I will wait for him every day.

We will prevail
We are eternal
We are mighty
We are faith-full
The world will see
And they will know that
We value life
We choose life! And Love.
We are one
Our God is one.

Please don’t tarry any longer.
