The Penetrating Darkness

Moments ago an answer to prayer
Joy in heaven’s ordained purpose
Now an inconvenient tangible pain without voice
Only softly flowing tears for another victory lost

The enemy gloats at another victory
Beating down the best and the brightest among us
Convincing there is some intangible connection
Something more than simple unity in Spirit

Divide and conquer his perverse battle cry
Magnify the differences in the obscuring gray
Letting us know we’ll never be enough
Crushing out hope with the penetrating darkness
