    Oh inner Soul,
    Why is thee cast down within me?
    The Townsmen....they do not know,
    They hang me out to dry and judge me
    On which they do not know,
    But you father...
    You See Me,

    And you know Who I Am
    You Identify with me
    For I am your child
    and you embrace me...
    Cup my face in your hands
    and soothe me,
    In the face of those who could not possibly know...

    Oh inner Soul,
    Do not die from the weight of those
    Who can not possibly understand the rocks of your traveled roads...
    Or the taste of sweet well water to your parched throat

    But YOU Father,
    YOU know me...
    YOU who created me in my mothers womb,
    Who carefully secreted my souls cacoon
    of traveled roads...

    Oh inner Soul
    Why is thee cast down within me,
    Please advise me, oh Son of David
    Seed of Mary,
    Remove the pain of my soul​

    Poetess of Infinity,

    A soul at peace is a soul prepared for battle.

    I love the way your words emanate light.

    In the Spirit of Sankofa!

    sweet apple*pie,

    Beautiful, this is it! All stanzas are magnificent, the below sealed it for me:

    Oh inner Soul,
    Do not die from the weight of those
    Who can not possibly understand the rocks of your traveled roads...
    Or the taste of sweet well water to your parched throat

    But YOU Father,
    YOU know me...
    YOU who created me in my mothers womb,
    Who carefully secreted my souls cacoon
    of traveled roads...


    Thank you Poetess.....This is bump action!

    We all meet those who assume they know the roads we have trod, but there are those struggles that only God and ourselves truly know. Well posed piece poetess.

    it's not you

    nothing is wrong with you

    living in such an unspiritual programmed robotic place

    will make you ask these questions

    and i see you have a pure spirit

    keep believing in what you want from the heart

    and you will get it

    pace yourself

    it's long journey

    it's called life

    you'll be fine

    trust in your power

    Yes, you are most certainly correct queen. The spirit may be cast down, but it is not cast out. From the flames it will arise. More stronger, and more resiliant than it orginated.

    Poetess, I took a moment to consider your words here. You speak the truth. When our soul is content and rested within us, nothing or no one can challenge that peace. It is the unremovable peace of the Lord, who centers his position in our souls...never shifting to the left or right.

    Yes Watz you are right... The most honorable love affair is the one that we share with our father, who knows us so intimatley...we dont have to explain a thing... so comforting is it to escape into his prescence, instead of a world in which we have no face, and no understanding of anothers soul

    Thanks Luv-ly. Yeah, sista I needed a calm river..washes away all the worlds impurities

    Thank you rich, A soul is like a diamond. Produced by pressure.

    Yes the journey is long, but I tell myself that it does ultimatley lead to the Masters destination...it's so hard, Street...closing the door on the world, who will then try to come through all the windows.

    Thank you not so simple poet, it's comforting to know that you understand. On those traveled roads, its comforting to know I have your hand.
