A Moment in Time
A Poem by Bijal Shah
When you’re in the midst of chaos.
Blitzed by never-ending pain.
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.
We will get through this.
