In a World

I hate myself
because I can’t fix the
world.

and yet I live in a pile of pieces

a thousand thousand shattered things–

hopes
dreams
facts
lies
promises
lives
a million crushed worlds.

Oh, God, my God,
Creation is groaning!
and You are the only one
Who can heal it.

But You know this all.

You’ve walked these mountains
of splinters.  You’ve felt them
fill Your bloodied back.

You took the shattering I deserved–

and You shattered it.
