When the Rivers Froze-Kenyan poet


I stood on the frigid ice

Caked in endless snow like fear, grief and hurt buries one

Frost bite threatened like a dangerous cancer

The waves their form no more

And all that was left was the frozen depths

When the rivers froze

The sun and the stars stood still

No more did their rays bring heat

The winds blasted the whispering birds away

And the eyes gazed at the frozen depths

When the rivers froze

I wrapped my heart with your loving word

Held to your hand that led my path

Cuddled with your truths and sweet spirit

Tenderly, your love broke through the numbness

And blazed through the frozen depths into glorious light.
