    (This one I wrote many a moons ago but never posted for it shares too much of my life and its purpose. I share it today for i found the strength to reveal it...)

    I have walked alone in human form all these days, never
    knowing if the love I share will be the love I received
    as I move too fast without the thought of seeing what’s
    ahead for the life I live is no longer the path I desire.

    The choice is not mine when I try to turn back…

    This is when another is brought for me to spread the love,
    share the hope, force them to face the fears of past doors
    closed, history’s ramifications in order to prepare them for
    the work designed for them as they grow into their destiny;

    But what about me?

    Why can I not have the love that I share to await me at
    the end of the day when all others whom drained me of
    my essence pulling from me their hopes leaving me slumped
    over into a pile of listless emotions struggling to find its
    place in a world that’s not ready for my introduction;

    my words speak of love, comfort, peace, serenity as
    my life speaks of question, doubt, confusion, fear for
    my walk is healing, teaching. Loving, comforting and
    yet my desire is just to be loved by one who truly fits
    within the scope of ordered steps;

    each one that comes my heart is changed, rearranged
    to open for them, receive them, embrace them, AGAPE
    love them and yet I find myself in the like-mindedness
    of Jonah for I don’t want for them to be with another;

    how can i be selfish doing His work?

    Why me? Why must I be the one to show them how to
    be loved only to see them strong and true, understanding
    and seeking, finding love in the arms of another sharing
    their lives forever with the one whom they were removed.

    I walk alone in this world searching for the one whom
    fits the place on my side that I favor as I move about
    touching the lives of others and until I find that one I
    shall walk alone allowing the healing to continue for
    when they think their love is for me, once I'm removed
    they will know “…a prophet has been among them.”

    (Mark 6: 45-47)
    Immediately Jesus made his disciples get into the boat and go on ahead of him to Bethsaida, while he dismissed the crowd. After leaving them, he went up on a mountainside to pray. When evening came, the boat was in the middle of the lake, and he was alone on land.

    Numbers 12:6
    he said, "Listen to my words: "When a prophet of the LORD is among you, I reveal myself to him in visions, I speak to him in dreams.

    Ezekiel 3:17
    "Son of man, I have made you a watchman for the house of Israel;"

    Life Scripture (Ezekiel 2:1-3:14)

    KNOW THY SELF...

    and the path you walk...how you touch those around you...how you move those who touch you...when the leaving time is upon you...THEY WILL KNOW.

    Journey on.

    I read you D-mo

    and I feel the vulnerble underpinnings of this piece...
    Only in recent times have I been blessed to behold the truest heart of a loving man...It has taught me well and now I know that we share common concerns for our souls' desires...as we, men and women, seek to come together as one. There is no doubt in my mind that the Spirit speaks to each of us if we will but listen...and there is no confusion, only confirmation...

    Pray for peace and discernment. From the mouths of two or three witnesses, your answers shall come.

    Speak Poet.

    thank you for sharing what had to be difficult to utter.

    baller and Alyce,

    i thank you for the read. I accepted a long time ago that i walk a long, lonely road doing the will of God. For those whom walk in the Spirit...know that He called me into the office of a Prophet,not just the gift. This carried so much weight as it carries so much pain. Not mine but the understanding of others. My life has been full of many whom fell "in love" with the concept of all that I am not realizing they are seeing what God has for them in another. My pain, seeing and knowing what each one has, helping them through the pain and seeing them happy with another. Sometimes i get angry but it only takes a moment to bring me back tot he reality that I am a Healer, sent by God, and as I continue to do His will others will be blessed.

    I truly understand what the Bible means when it says...

    "obedience is greater than sacrifice..."

    Well Done

    Well Said...just all good to the 5th power. I'm glad you've found it. I know that story you just told. But you are always blessed in the end. I kind of curious...I guess looking a head. But what do you do if you find that one...that soul mate and you go your seperate ways. I often wonder...how will that change my view on things. Will i be happy alone knowing that i once had what would be greater than just having someone their or will i just get over it and find another. I don't know...something for me to ponder... Thanks for the read.... ;)

    thank you my friend...allowing this piece to come forth was a task. Knowing the walk before me is one thing but to share it with the world is another...

    Thanks for the read and the prayers...much needed
