This is not the road
I would have chosen to walk.
It is wearing me out,
pushing all I have to the limit.
Darkness surrounds me
and I have to rely on what I feel
not on what I see.
Now I have an opportunity,
to understand the Atonement on a new level.
This new depth of pain
will require a new depth of healing
which could produce a new depth of faith
which could lead to a new depth of knowledge.
So I will offer up thanks
for this sore trial
that will either make or break me
and for this defining moment
when I get to choose who I will become.
Thank you for the refiner’s fire
that will leave me forever changed.
