A Rough Mercy

A mercy that holds nothing back
A wave that brings chaotic comfort
A mercy that we would survive
Just when you couldn’t hold it any longer
A new feeling washes over you
You lose yourself
As it comforts every fiber of your body
Your anger sorrow and pain
Perhaps transforming into an all new emotion
It starts as rough as gravel
Slowly being molded
Smoothed sanded and polished
Then finally slipped into place
The missing puzzle piece
You don’t know what to do
Mercy has smiled upon you
But at a cost
Hardship comes
Testing your strengths all over again
A rough mercy reveals itself
Helping you gain strength
The strength you used
With you new emotion
A rough mercy finally bringing peace
