psalm 32: this terrible pilgrimage

staggering, tripping along
the road in dark silence,
i hide my shame deep
down inside, safe inside
in which no one
has access but
you and me.

though my guilt presses me
down, still i walk on,
holding on for dear life,
fearful of what i might
possibly feel if i ever
let go of the pain.

one day this terrible
pilgrimage will come
to an end. one day
i will unburden myself of
this sorrow and
begin the road home.

and i will finally see
how the way back
has ever been before me,
illuminated by the light
that shines through the cracks
of my broken soul.
