The Voice of my Soul...
I came to a realization two mornings ago. I could either accept what God brings me and be content with myself or I could take it and complain. I accepted what was brought to me and have managed to hold onto the smile it brought and have created 7 new pieces of poetry since that morning....by processing my emotions. By processing them I gave myself the ability to live through them, not allowing them to rule my life.
Do I have everything that I truly want? No. There's always "more" that any of us could want. Yet I have more than I ever could have hoped for growing up as a child. I have my freedom to be me. I have the gift of human touch....hugs are healing. I have gentleness for my soul. I have the basics that I need. So I am content.
I look at so many people in this world who are hurting. Who are wandering. Who are searching for what? Some don't even know. Who are lost. I had been there for some time now. Without direction. Without acceptance of my own world. How many times have I heard the words "Master yourself" and never truly understood what they meant. To be the Master of your own life. To see and understand what life has truly brought you through truthful eyes...not wishful eyes. To accept what is in front of you and help it heal... help it grow. To strive to do more ... to be more.... to dig so deep within your own soul that you even surprise yourself.
I feel different. I even look different... not so much on the outside, but you can see it in my eyes. They say the eyes are the window to the soul. They're right. When the eyes shine...the soul shines too.
The Voice of my Soul...
Here me now...listen closely
I'll teach you what you need to be...
first and foremost a poet by trade
healing hearts.. healing nerves that are frayed
second a Mom... a parent through and through
teach by example...even your mistakes will see you through.
third a friend... a rock for another
unconditional..nonjudgmental... a giver to another
fourth a partner to that one who holds your heart
this must compliment each of your hearts.
fifth a servant not to man himself
but to humanity to help each one heal themselves.
In what order do these belong? This I leave up to you.
When you search your heart, you'll know what you must do.
I hope you listened carefully...
for this is who you need to be.
I ask each of you to listen to your soul. Who is it that you need to be? Who is it that you truly are? Search my friends deep inside and you will be amazed at what you find. May this week be a week of miracles for you. Be Blessed!
tons of hugs....
