For Pere
I asked
but there was no answer
I did seek
but could not find
I even knocked
and patiently I waited -
yet the door stayed firmly shut
for me
it would not open

I read every scripture written
and from below the pulpit
I listened
to every word spoken
but still -
my mind stayed shattered
in a thousand places
my heart
remained forever broken

I meditated one day
it was in the silence
that I sensed
a subtle peace
the like of which
transcended
any word written
and any word spoken
