Loss & Gain

Oh, this world of folded curtains

it hides its secrets well.

What once you thought was certain,

now, you cannot tell.

For simple things my heart is glad,

One God, One Truth, One Will

It guides me through the darkness,

And keeps my demons still.

Provokes tears of wonder,

of shame, of hope, of regret

Everyday makes me stronger,

And pinches when I forget.

Makes itself into a compass,

When I’m blinded by the pain,

Heals the wounds with reminders,

Turns the losses into gain.

Oh, this world of folded fabric,

This world of lies and pain.

You are nothing but a test

You are loss without gain.
