Be shattered Like alabaster Be broken Be willing To let go To die If need be Shards lie Cold Brittle Jagged Raw Numb this pain! Stop this anguish! My God! My God! I don't understand. Yet, I know this In the shattering Is Immanuel God with me Holding the pieces So Be shattered Be broken Be willing To let go To die If need be For only shattered alabaster diffuses fragrance - R. D. P.
* Inspired by Isaiah 8:9 & 10
