It's Real

It's Real
(c) Rabbi Menachem Creditor

It's real. It's real.
All I can think to say...
Words escape me,
and my heart begins to shake.

That sound, 
that primal scream of broken-ness,
I fall into it, broken myself, 
shivering in awe at its call.

I shake 
into one, 
into three, 
into nine,
into one...

One.
