The Soul Within


The world as I know it, is based on what I ‘ve heard and what I’ve seen;
my family and I unknowingly have developed a theme.
The self-destruction, ignoring the repercussions, its all that I know,
but, somehow, someway I must let it go.

Sometimes, I can feel myself falling, but I can’t control the pace;
my fears, my doubts, all the insecurities; will appear for me to face.
Thinking I was passed this, but knowing I was wrong,
it’s as if, I keep wanting to play, my favorite sad love song.

It happen so fast, I feel as though I’m losing my mind;
I need to surrender and just give it some time.
While, I sit in the forest and I’m face with just my fears,
I don’t want to stay, but I know I need to be here.

I feel frighten and scared, I am cold and alone;
I’m left with nothing, but these thoughts I call my own.
Once this journey has come to an end,
I hope to have heard, what my soul yearns from within.

While, I dance in the wind, in this place I now call my home;
acceptance and tolerance will keep me from being alone.
Accepting, who I am and Tolerating who I can be,
I’ am now starting to experience, what is known as true harmony.

Trusting in myself, all of my thoughts are now clear;
as I reach into my soul, I am able to listen to what I hear.
My body swings into motion, my heart never skips a beat;
at last, I have arrived; I now feel complete.

The universe I live within, I’ am surrounded by positive energy;
the things that I want most in life will only come from synergy.
As I look back into the forest, where I have left all my fears behind,
there is nothing more satisfying, then have peace of mind.

Letting what is…is, letting what will be…be;
And of course, allowing myself to listen, to the soul that lives within me.
Now, when I look into the mirror, it’s just not myself that I see,
It’s a reflection of love towards everyone around me.

Then how wonderful you are, and I have remembered that I am too;
There is nothing in this world, we are unable to do.
As we lift up the shield, from all of the negative energy,
We can allow God to intervene, who is love, and Love is Reality.

Live, Love and Laugh always,

    Nice poem. I always love a good bit of over-decent literature, and this is one of the rare occasions where I actually find it. Good work, there. When it comes to poetry, my area of expertise is limericks. From one writer to another, good job! I like the profound theme and the end rhymes.
