Wounded Warriors

Today I was inspired by a photo posted on Facebook by my friend in England, Brother Lawrence Lew, O.P. His photo and the attached message inspired this poem that I wrote this afternoon. Thank you, Brother Lew, for your beautiful photos and service to Our Lord.


Wounded Warriors

When I am left
Wounded by words,
Betrayed and
by those
who were once
I must remember
at the end
I will kneel
at the feet
of a Sacrificed Savior.
The Resurrected Lord
that I greet

He still carries
the wounds of friends
In His hands.

Silver Linings

Everybody falls sometimes
Gotta find the strength to rise
From the ashes and make a new beginning
Anyone can feel the ache
You think it’s more than you can take
But you're stronger, stronger than you know
Don’t you give up now
The sun will soon be shining
You gotta face the clouds
To find the silver lining...

From "What Faith Can Do" by Kutless
It's my favorite new song!

Time to face the clouds
and find my silver lining...
