Unanswerable Questions

I no longer want to ask
unanswerable questions
or feel broken
to ache for wholeness
to hurt and know not
how to heal this pain

I seek meaning in the absurd
peace within chaos
light within darkness
joy without suffering
or at least, an understanding
why I must withstand
all that I face with
faith, hope and sureness
that all is as it should be?

I bleed from my soul
where is my conflict—
that there is much to be
learned from a soul
bent in pain?

I feel shredded
torn to pieces
am I a saint yet?

Oh, please
let me be a wayward soul
comfortable in a human form
accepting my frailties
yet sensing that there is
so much more
to that which I call
me
