A Way Through

This week:
there are no words.

No, that's not right --
There are so many words,
word upon word upon word --
some are swallowed,
some are cried out,
some are chanted,
some are posted,
some are deleted,
some are released in anger,
some are held back in fear,
some are sung in elegy,
some are whispered in prayer,
some thank Jesus,
some ask him for guidance,
some ask, "What's next?"
some challenge the answer,
some say sorry,
some say anything but.

And even though I keep forming all sorts of words with my mouth and my fingers and my mind,
I can't seem to find the right ones. But I'll keep trying.
