At Last

At times pain overwhelms us;
And all around us we see chaos
These are times when it is
Difficult to trust, hard to open up,
Perhaps, impossible to undo damage or forgive.

At times pain overwhelms us;
And suddenly we glimpse the truth:
We know a soul-kin
As well as the pretenders,
Near or far away, for us.

At times pain overwhelms us;
And going through it,
We find peace, at last;
Not around us, but within us,
And there is pain no more.
