    I shall rest under the veil of a name
    Given to me before my conception
    For the concept of me is more than
    I could comprehend without the shade;

    In my self actualization of life involving
    My input is simply an exercise in futility
    If I allow the dismal cloud of assumptions
    To be the defining point of my true being;

    I must journey past the broken hearts and
    Constant disappointments of man to find
    A place where I can rebuild, regroup and
    Rekindle the fire ignited in me at my rebirth;

    You see, my heart that bleeds of human
    Libations can be torn apart by emotional
    Daggers from others who have yet to know
    What they desire from life and true love;

    But if my heart bleeds the libations of life
    Then there is no weapon formed against me
    Simply because it is impossible to destroy
    What is “hedge of protected” by God;

    So I shall do more than just walk the path
    But also love on HIM that made me by
    Laying my head on his bosom and loving
    HIM intimately as He desires of me today

    rest...

    under the eternal protection of his umbrella...that none may rise against you and stand.

    keep rendering KNOWLEDGE from the meadow of serenity.

    Very deep and spiritually driven. I thoroughly enjoyed living this piece. Yes I said living, because it has a life and it moves and grows. I've read it 3 times and it has spoken to me each time in several different ways. So it lives. Plus I too am on a similar journey so I can relate to this poem.

    Thanks for the blessing of your words, and the call of the father upon your life...to him be the glory and the praise.
