Eventually, You Will Land


ground gives way
the edges crumble
clouds won’t hold
me through the sky
mountains shift
the oceans rumble
I spread my thoughts
and hope to fly

my shaking heart
seeks calm assurance
falling fast, I’ve
none to give
the world I knew
lies broken open
sorrow swells where
joy once lived

inside out
the worst now spoken
loudly cry the
barren trees
I’m falling still
no one will help
they weep, we pray
on broken knees

sky gives way
to mountains thrusting
life from death
new earth is born
I land atop this
jagged crest
where lying bruised
I wait the morn
