Living in this world
Which often feels foreign
Bereft of caring, compassion, soul
I question so much in my search
To know, to feel, to expand my heart
To transcend my soul to a higher purpose
Struggling against man made complacency
Lost at times within my own self...
Putting my hopeful fingers to this canvas
The blood flowing through my veins,
Merged with the vision of my soul
Painting my path, holding faith to my essence
Reaching beyond what lies on the surface
To an eclipse, dancing in the memories
Which originate somewhere
Beyond my humble being...
This canvas of life so vast
Having no beginning, nor ending
Never fear that you are not perfect enough
You are created in divinity
Sparing nothing to be
Your destiny calls to you
Embrace it without fear
You are never alone...
Look towards the light
In the garden you will find
Flowers and thorns
But it is still an oasis
Do you not know you are perfection
Created in the image of the divine
Nothing lacking or wanting
Hold this to your soul and know...
Shall we despair and curse life?
Or weave it with the threads of
Understanding, compassion and love ?
I ask you now...
I plead for your soul...
To transcend beyond safety
Reaching for the sanctity
Embedded within your heart...
This is my question...
I place it before you...
And await your reply...
