Barren – A Poem by Cynthia Pitman

Poetry by Cynthia Pitman

Nothing is a hollow place.
It takes up residence in your soul. 
How can that place be filled, be healed,
be made hallow with celestial ecstasy?
Should you hunt for a new soul,
discarding all that withers away within,
renouncing your Self in the process?
Or should you just continue, barren and broken,
seeing, and feeling, and knowing and being
