Our deepest enemies

When sorrow can be expressed up front,
with tears and feelings of deep anguish,
with anger and rage;
it can be a balm of sorts,
though the suffering continues,
perhaps never ending.

There are those who don’t react this way,
(many, perhaps even most),
yet something else happens,
a deep darkness descends,
there is neither rage or anger,
at least felt,
only a feeling that the heart,
the soul,
is being lacerated beyond repair,
as if all of humanity is suffering.

Revenge and despair are our deepest enemies,
for both mimic realities,
seeking to escape the ‘unknowing’ of our realm,
the reality that to figure things out,
to understand our selves and others,
may in fact be impossible.

The closer the evil,
the deeper the wound.

Families, individuals, communities and nations can be wounded,
for the connection is deeper than we know;
all we can do perhaps is to seek to forgive,
to embrace and yes for those who believe,
to pray for healing, mercy and if possible,
understanding.

I feel Lord that I am sinking,
what a spider web mankind has created,
a sharing of pain and evil and sorrow,
a connection of chaos and disintegration,
which perhaps only love can heal.

Love does not save from pain;
it only increases our capacity to endure,
as you did when you experienced what we can do,
to you, to each other, a seeking to kill the God image
in others and in ourselves.

Perhaps hell is a place of coldness,
humanity dead,
darkness,
the embracing of shadows and despair,
a ploy to escape the pain of love,
of forgiveness and the love of self and others,
and the wounding and healing of your infinite loving fire.

I absolutely love these poems you keep posting. :tu: Keep it up man.

Jesus Christ - Matthew 28:18-20 said:

"All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age."

I find myself humbled each time I read something you write, Mark.

You truly are a wise man.

I agree that it may indeed be impossible to understand ourselves, especially in an absurd universe seemingly devoid of sympathy.

And the complexities of ourselves can only feed our frustration at times.. It is hard to be human.

Love, although completely irrational in its nature, seems like the only sensible option for such a mixed up existence.

Thank you.  Poems are a bridge to my soul, never know what will come out, but it is healing and I believe I am not unique in my experience, pain and struggles.
