A Blessed Opus

Life is embellished by human ornamentation–happiness, laughter, jokes, sadness, tragedy, lies, hatred, anger, lamentation, and plenty more.   I try to witness every single moment I experience under the sun. And writing a poem is my best way to witness my life. I wrote the poem below when I was downcast. I call this a blessed opus because it was noticed by a great, talented composer Moises Nadela and he composed this poem into a song. There are some changes with the lyrics due to song purpose (only musician knows about it ^.^). I keep thanking God for this blessed opus 😀

Where are you, Lord?

I cried out at night,

calling him to help me out,

My shame and distress,

they all made me shout.

My heart was being pierced,

with thousands of arrows.

I’d been deprived of peace,

and my eyes grew weak in sorrow.

I then asked Him,

“Where are you, Lord?”

I had no more power.

I wanted Him to lift up my heart,

and washed away my iniquities.

I wanted Him to make me calm,

and stopped me from being foolish.

“Oh, where are you, Lord?

Rise me up!

Lift me up!

Don’t hide from me, Lord!

Joy and gladness are all I want!”
