In the darkness (Reflecting on John 9)

It is dark here

in my wilderness.

It has been dark a long time.

And the bleak despair now

has spread to my soul.

I am completely alone:

surrounded by those

who see clearly

what to me are only

the frightening sounds

of perpetual isolated night.

Hope has receded

that the alienation

of my darkness

could ever give way

to seeing love

in another’s eyes.

A thousand questions

about God’s justice,

a thousand accusations

within me and without

seeking to blame someone

for my lonely existence.

And this darkness

in my soul

so much deeper

than that behind my eyelids.

But sometimes

it is only when hope dies

that a Saviour

can come.
