    My Father holds my hand
    Gave me hope when I thought it was none
    He shines his light upon me….
    And it....said I wouldn’t make it….
    What do it know…….I
    Came from the dark to walk in the light
    Once again I am calling out
    Every now and then
    I get in so much pain
    Trying to break the chains..
    and it's getting harder
    The seasons keep changing
    Like a slow motion ride
    A lost game fighting the wild
    Jumping fences …
    Within the deepness of the woods
    It lurks for....…my soul
    Bleeding inside as my spirit fights to lift
    It....tries to bring me down
    Scheming betraying just lying
    With a smile on its face……
    Now I am trying to do the right thing
    It’s like a war of good and evil going on inside
    As I begin to walk my path....here it comes
    Once more…. like a force working
    Inside of me that wont let go…
    As I turn around…I am still shining in the light
    see I…..

    Been there and done that
    Now its time I answer my true calling
    We search this earth high and low
    When Peace is within us….

    Within...it is. The pains and the trials of life...is just what they are, ..a part of life. And the strong will survive. This is such a lovely poem. thanks for sharing it with us.

    I have found that in reading much of your work, your flow is very unique. The reader can almost feel the movement of their soul with every line. Like all the others, this poem is no different...simply beautiful, Black Angel...simply beautiful :sand:

    Within

    :hot: Dear Poetic Sister this is beautifully mastered and I know it is of Spiritual Nature because...being in the Family Of God I not only recognize but I truly embrace the higher calling of that peace the world...will never know .
    It's the kind of peace that you describe in your flow along with the battle of good and evil that eventually makes one whole and you just keep letting it flow Sister because God sits high and looks low and I need doses of your Poetic Spiritually Inspiration to keep me strong . Go head on with your awesome and talented self !

    Lift us up because we all need a boost !

    One Love In All That's Spiritually Bound In Creativity and Respect For Others Works ! I love it !
