Wednesday Riff: Darkness

He knows it,
Has walked those steps,
The uncertainty,
The questions,
The wondering,
The shadows and shades
Of pain and unexpected
Challenges.
He knows these things.
Has walked those steps
In the heat of life’s unfairness,
In the wilderness
Of emptiness,
And lack of triumph.
Tired and spent,
Day turning to night,
His cries bouncing off
Darkening skies,
He knows these things.
God in the dust,
In the emptiness,
In the sweat, the failure
And the questions.
God with us.
On our side.
