Seeking an Answer

 

The dark clouds loom over my heart and soul

Seeing violence overwhelm his sweetness

Anger flashes and seethes with black fire

The desire to hurt, to cause pain in another

It overwhelms my vision of his gentleness

I look, seeking an answer

 

Autism is the diagnosis; I see beyond this

Such a fragile shell of self contains his peace

Lashing out violently when he perceives threat

Attacking ferociously without any mercy

Life is his battleground, a seven year old warrior

I ask, seeking an answer

 

Fear of the future pops up inside my mind

Can these demons within him be tamed?

Can he learn to lead a normal life rich with love?

Will he become the man that I dream for him?

I am hopeful, patiently waiting… patiently waiting

I hope, seeking an answer

 

Wrestling with peace within myself over this

Struggling to release the pain and anguish

Compassion draws me deeper into the fray

Becoming one with his pain, feeling the turmoil

I speak into the heavens; silence returns

I pray, seeking an answer

 

I listen… waiting… with patience…

Now with renewed peace

~~~
