Terrestrial Trial


My mantra has no words.
It has no sound.
It rises from within me
As it rises from the ground.

I cannot help but cry,
With all the earth.
As with creation groaning
In the pangs of giving birth.

One day I'll have my words
Not just the burn.
For now I only cry to Him
And plead for His return.
