    realeyesrealize how to read between the lines and break the surface shedding that within the flesh which holds some of the worst things
    this yearning has me anxious to release
    let me lead you to the rivers of crystal waters where the vision is clear
    Love is the seed yeilding fruit right
    here
    many longing for it's cleasning flow reaching beyond that thirsting of our soul it's deep
    those with a desperate need can feel it's breeze as these life experiences we meet with greet us on this journey.There is the promise to chase this hidden hurt away
    for me a desire so great I would immerse completely emptying the lies of the mind, so that I am not victim of destructive thoughts.
    Even so to rid my heart and soul of all the contamination ever prying at my gates
    eyes mouth nose taste and feelings,
    conscious emotions no longer leaning on my wavered thinking
    these waters revitalize and reconstruct my inner design.
    I am called to this life giving flow, freedom and not ashamed to be naked exchanging the old garments for something far greatter.
    Some need a make over but conform to the wise be not deceived and walk in the light.
    LOVE uninterrupted and without defect selfless and unconditional is life's fullest
    gift.
    So in bravery I make my way to these shores ready to embrace this new taste of living. :car:
    open to receive all the offers it is giving.
    Now I see past the disguises trying to hold me from what is
    the reality that life is sweeter than it seems and I :kiss1: am blessed
    even when the mountain before me stands,
    though those around me may not understand
    I can make it
    when lonliness provokes me to take my last breath
    I can be refreshed cause this river never runs dry
    So does love washing the tears from my eyes

    I just humble myself and give God the glory
    Hoping that maybe those who take the time to read
    would see the reality and in His name spread love.
    Thank you for replying and I admire you passion and honesty,
    keep looking up.
    Nuff LUv.

    :kiss1: For Rich and Bluewater thanks for the love,
    As I am going through what I know is but only for a moment
    My hope is dwelling in the manifestion of my deepest LOVE
    To fullfill what he has me to
    and all I am belongs to him
    yet I find myself crying in the showers of his mercy
    He still finds me deserving
    So the pain of a condition in time
    can only be personalized as I arise from my carnal state
    However HE has never let me down, nor cast me away
    The passion of his LOVE is with me everyday.
    So in his name I send much LOVE,
    and Thanks.

    realeyesrealize..."love the name"...first and foremost
    I love your style of writing
    word selection and depth
    there was a lot of inner reflection
    in this piece...hence your name
    one who truly sees...
    beyond natural sight
    instead has embraced true vision
    which comes from within allowing
    one to love self..., love others,
    enlighten minds that have not yet grasped the concept...
    and scribe pieces...of poetry
    as magnificent as this...

    Continue to let your thoughts flow...
    you have a gift...continue to craft it
    Peace & Love...
    Sage
