Where are you God?

Where are you God?

By Danie Weaver

Where are you God?

When I am screaming joyfully on the mountain top

When I fought and climbed,

Bruised and battered

Finally able to breathe the clean crisp air

You are in Everything.

The map, the hand-holds and the air.

Where are you God?

When I am in the dark valley

Unable to see anything 

Except for a few dim  stars  

And my tears strangle

You are in Everything

The dark, the dim stars, and the strangling tears.

Where are you God?

When I feel forgotten

When all my friends have kids

And the love I wish to share

Is encapsulated in a tiny outfit?

You are in Everything

The kids, the tiny outfit, and the waiting love.

Where are you God?

When my sadness makes my heart hurt

When my tears make me feel claustrophobic

You are in Everything

The claustrophobia, the heart hurts, and the tears.

Where are you God

When the meanness, hate, and distrust surround

And I feel nervous about the color of my skin

When kindness is drowned by bullets, shouts, and raised fists

You are in Everything

In the shouts, the bullets, and raised hands.

Where are you God?

When the world tilts 

And everything brings fear, worry, and anger.

Suddenly I can’t breathe.

You are in Everything

The tilts, the fear, and the gasps for breath.

 

Where are you God 

When I am waiting

Waiting to be a mom, 

Waiting, praying, and crying

You are in Everything

The tears, the prayers, and the waiting.
