Lament

Lament

When it is time to return
To Eternity’s ever-climbing path,
     Why do I delay?
Countless are my twisted ways.
Why can I not surrender cheerfully
     Without hesitation
     Or reservation?

Once again, God’s Hour is postponed,
     Indefinitely.
Faint cries of desperation
     Reverberate
          And dissolve
Within my soul’s impenetrable
     Depths of silence.
Unheard…

– Pulak Viscardi.
