After the Fall

After the fall,
I quietly stumble home
when riotously I ran away before.

After the fall,
my cheeks were bathed with tears of shame
when before my heart was flooded with pride.

After the fall,
I felt naked and exposed, vulnerable and helpless
when previously I roared with power, ready to fight.

After the fall,
I longed for Your embrace and Your presence
when just moments earlier I hid from You.
