We groan

After Romans 8:12-25

We groan within,
a racking of the soul, 
a piercing of the heart,
a stifled scream, for
what we know is
coming, the changes
promised, a new heaven
and a new earth,
a new father and
a new body,
a realization of hope
for the unseen, a hope
promised and anticipated,
a hope enshrouded
with patience. That is
what we groan for.
