    ...Its been a minute since I've been here, but it feels great to feel the power coursing through my pen again. I hope you all enjoy. Blessings


    It was like the rippling effect...
    the result of five polished stones thrown
    across the water's surface.
    They spread out wider and wider until they vanished...
    Something interesting and hypnotic...
    so much akin to life and the disappearance of
    problems and those poisionous 'life-fumes,'
    Life constantly seems to leave behind.
    Today I caste the first stone against
    doubting myself...
    against forgiving myself...
    against my past...
    against the things in my present...
    against any and everything negative
    that I or any other could use to abuse and quickly
    pull me down.
    I lit the fuse and watched it all burst into vivid flames.
    I see and I saw the light at the end of the tunnel...
    suddenly there is a open space in my own
    immolation scene...I can pass through the fires
    uscathed or scorched.
    The oveture of self-deprication, destruction and estimation's changed abruptly for a vorspiel of pure
    melodious and legato harmonies in a Major Key.

    I caste the first stone and watched the surface of life's
    ill's become disrupted.
    I watched it become disturbed and confused...
    In its confusion, I finally grabbed the strength to walk on by and disassociate myself from that liquid fusion...
    Today...
    I walk sun beams, sipping a glass of moonlight with the light sprinkle of dew to cool my skin.
    Today i'm operatingIn Paradisum;
    Today I...simply wash myself in HIS peace.

    WOW


    What more can I say...
    What more can I say...
    This poem touched my soul so deeply...
    I'm truly speechless...
    now get out of my head, heart and soul... :cry: j/k
    In all truth..."I applaud your work"...
    and I applaud the brilliant mind and
    beautiful soul beneath it...

    Very nice... :star:

    The truth have been spoken, you are blessed your pen speaks from the spirits who have passed and gone, the message has been confirmed, respect and love.
