While We Face Our Humanity
a poem by Marie Laperle Scott | Spring 2008


Never were we meant to be alone.
Never were we meant to fail.
We were never meant to end.

Therefore, in this life
when we are lonely,
when we fall short,
when we have to say goodbye,

our souls so ache with intensity and burning
that we can hardly stand.

Let this aching draw us
ever nearer to that Deep, Transcendent Beauty
ever calling unto our deep,
dependent being.

 


Marie Laperle Scott '06
