A Poem by Bijal Shah

When you’re in the midst of chaos.

Blitzed by never-ending pain.

Helplessness looms.

Reality sinks in that life may not change.

This is the path.

Hope is nowhere to be found.

We despair. We ache. We cry.

Tears drown our soul.

The heart feels weighty.

We hold the moment.

Knowing that all we need right now is to stay strong.

Once dawn strikes, newness springs.

New beginnings, people and life.

Hope appears.

We will get through this.
