We sit in darkness

After Isaiah 33

We sit in darkness,
surrounded, besieged
on all sides, defenses
exhausted, resources
gone, given to appease,
given in vain, nothing
left, nothing to give,
allies vanished, the brave
weeping in the streets,
abandoned and naked,
exposed to destruction.

Only then do we pray
only then do we seek
only then do we throw
   ourselves at his feet
only then
only then does the wind blow.
