I Saw The Ocean Divide

Like as that was it

The end had dawned on me

When my hands had failed me

And nerve had departed

In a night without moon nor star

A day of stillness and summer heat

Scorching and hellishly hurting

Lying down but couldn’t sleep

Tossing about without relief

All options none and zero

The heavens but quiet and dark

Without a wish for tomorrow

Without a hope for the future

Every tick of clock paining as a syringe

A life divided into minutes and seconds

Every moment counting down to unfortunate fate

Overwhelmed and overpowered knees tremble

And the prodigal once more bow

In reverence fasting and fervent prayer

He opens his eyes and the sea has parted

The storm hushed and there’s great liberty

Both the believer and unbeliever exclaim,

How did that happen

Thus the power of prayer and

The testament of Divine Providence
