Falling Inside

September 10, 2023
By Sister Lael Niblick, CSA

Lately I feel like there is within me

This deep hole of sadness and pain

And now I am falling inside myself

While the world explodes into a million

Sun stars.

Still, I desperately cling to the hope

That somehow I will come out on

The other side of Peace and Joy.

Somewhere in a renewed world of Being

But it is so hard to smile when you are

Tumbling through aching emptiness

And it is so hard to remember gently

When your world is an exploding star.
