The Peace of Coming Home

Where are these feelings coming from?
the anger, pain and sorrow
these feelings of despair
this utter, hopeless frustration
that has no end

Shall I break or can I bend
yet one more time before the end?
or in bending will my life be shattered
like the limb of a tree in a hurricane's force
that bent to live yet only found its death

How many deaths shall I die?
upon this cross
before I'm finally released
into the peace
of coming home
into the arms of one
who loves me true
