    Confused? Said the High Priestess.
    "I don't know the sister/chile! replied".
    Where did you lose your way , where did your heart get broken?
    When did you lose your smile?
    "I guess it was from all the strife as a child, never was I greeted with a kiss or a smile."
    "They were always to busy for me to talk and when ever I insisted, my mother would balk!"
    I don't know ! Said the sister/chile, "I tried to be good and help anyone that I could, I know I made some mistakes."
    "But why is it the other guy that seems to always get the breaks?"
    Did you take short cuts? Did you vie from the path, the High Priestess did ask?
    I don't know, the sister/chile replied!
    Instinctively the High priestess knew she had lied.
    Bad things come back sometime ten times worse.
    So drop this line you have always rehearsed.
    "I broke some laws, and slept with other womens husbands!"
    "But, my back was against the wall!"
    There was never anyone there to catch me if I fall!
    Not true said the High Priestess, you just made other
    choices , did you not hear the direction of heavenly voices.
    "I never heard them, she cried"!
    NO! You blocked them out, again you have lied.
    Like Dorothy you have always held the keys to get home.
    But instead in confusion you continue to roam.
    Acknowledge the wrong you have done, and sit not in the seat of the scornful!. Seek to do good always!
    And live thy life in truth, this is the message you have been sent from your earliest youth.
    The keys are Love, Wisdom, Forgiveness, Hope & Faith.
    The keys to Abundant life are there for you , you need not wait.
    As she raised her sullen sadden, tear sodden eyes she saw beauty much to her surprise.
    There she saw finally what was always there, a place that goes with you everywhere.
    Remember that whenever you are lost...
    Retrace your steps!

    ONE STEP AT A TIME TO ABUNDANT LIFE!

    Y'all making me blush!

    I strive for some integrity in my art as well as what I do in my life, I see my poetry as a wonderful vehicle to send a message of hope love and redemption and reaffirmation. If I can do that for one person and they pass it on, then Grandaddy was right!

    Blessings On Ya House!

    Thanks Super Moderator!

    Truly this was inspired from a terrible situation which I chose to learn a lesson from. It's core comes from people's inability to take responsibilty for one's own actions. The primary goal however was to give us all a sense of solution. We don't have to engulf our inadequate lives behind a mask of deception and lies, we don't have to live in our past mistakes , we must forgive ourselves, and move on and learn from our past mistakes in order that we not repeat them again.

    Blessings On Ya House!
