Irreconcilable Differences




I’m forever lost—

Drifting unconsciously—

My shipwrecked life perpetually

Stranded by spousal loss, child loss,

Swirling undercurrents that

Pull apart unions, creating

Irretrievable breakdowns.


My out of body living

Kept me rowing aimlessly,

Left me bumping against

Peer pressure, popularity,

Worldliness, academia,

Skepticism, humanism—

Swelling tidal waves that

Unmoored me emotionally,

Floating me permanently,

Suspending me horizontally.


I’m condemned to be

Outside looking in, too

Powerless to reconcile.

If your fellow believer sins against you, you must go to that one privately and attempt to resolve the matter. If he responds, your relationship is restored. ~ Matthew 18:15, TPT
