Children of Pain

from the book Heavenly Order

Where goes this

icy dagger

But deep within

my heart,

To cut and tear with

cruel intent

And break my

soul apart?

Where can I find

a refuge

From relentless

searing pain,

When all about are

shreds of truth

I struggle with

in vain?

Where are the drops

of wisdom

To cool my

burning tears?

Perhaps I will only

find them

Through a search of

many years.
