Exile – A Mini-Ghazal

Wandering in the wilderness
exiled in darkness, I will return

Lost and lonely in a foreign land
without hope unless I will return

Like Ezra and Nehemiah I travel
towards home I press, I will return

Longing for home and security
if His name I profess I will return

  1. I love the sureness and faith in this one, Linda! God bless you!


    • Deb, I had to re-read this to see what you meant. It had seemed hopeful when I wrote it, but sureness didn’t occur to me. But I see what you mean. 🙂 I wish I had been that sure when I felt like I was in exile years ago, but thankfully He was sure. Peace, Linda
