A Poem: I Will Leap Across The Chasm Of Despair

Recommended Posts


My journey so far has led me to this-

A chasm seperating me and Your Bliss

Oh! It streches so wide, its depths unknown,

I have heard of the depths of despair, but never such dread had I known!

The sins of my past, the pains of my present,

The fear of the future, the times with worries spent

All of them loom down below, ready to devour me,

My hope, my joy and my love for Thee

Oh! My eyes search in desperation

For a bridge mocking this seperation

None can I see, for 'tis a chasm that I made on my own,

No wonder then, that there is no bridge, no friend, I am alone

In silent prayer, I seek your advice,

To cross the chasm, what is the price?

No riches can build a bridge so long,

For there are countless dangers all along

Your answer at last, has come today,

The price to pay, is to let go of dismay

With faith and joy, I will free myself from care,

Holding your hand, I will leap across the chasm of despair
