The Awakening

Life is bleak;
it is grim.
Too hard to live,
too hard to die.
Pain is all around
and
the glass half-empty
not half-full.
These things I've thought
and no surprise
that in my sadly jaded eyes
only gloom resides.

Then

somehow

the awakening:

For once
I began to see
through eyes not melancholy
but absurd
that life is funny;
it is full;
it is rich
and never dull.
Though the unforeseen
may test me still
I can smile and feel
the peace of God
that soothes and comforts
every ill.

The calmness now
within my heart
rules every dire calamity
and sees
beyond
all darkness and despair-
a time ahead
so bright and fair.
