From Pit to Purpose
by Terry R A Eissfeldt  
7/27/2007 / Poetry


I'm in the pit again
I thought I was running the race with joy
What happened, I'm not sure
I must have fallen
Or did You push me?

I'm in the pit again
Self-doubt and Self-Pity my only friends
Toxic company to be sure
I must have chosen them
Or did You send them?

No kodachrome world for me now
All colors have washed away
With the tears falling down my cheeks
Like a chalk painting in a summer storm
Monochromatic grays surround me

A voice penetrates
The blanket of despair I'm wrapped in
Reminding me of a commitment
Made in the sun
Our turn to serve at the Food Bank

Hundreds of people line the street
All in shades of gray like me
With the weight of a thousand failures
Encasing my arms I lift the spoon
To fill a plate with sustenance

"Thank you so much, God bless you"
An angel has appeared to me
She is five foot two and dirty
A smile encircles her face like a halo
Radiant colors erupt from her eyes

The power of thanksgiving rushes over me
It strips away all self and exalts The One
The spectacles of doubt and fear are replaced
With joy and peace. I breathe in Life
"Your welcome, and God bless you"
