Lost Souls

The day I had a conversation                                                                                                                                                                    With myself;                                                                                                                                                                                                        Was a day I truly realized,                                                                                                                                                                                   I was no different from anyone else.

It was a day like no other,                                                                                                                                                                                Time had stood still.                                                                                                                                                                                            It was as if I finally knew;                                                                                                                                                                               What it was to know God’s Will.

A prayer had been answered.                                                                                                                                                                          A gift had been given to me.                                                                                                                                                                               I saw the world in a new light.                                                                                                                                                                      The way God had intended it to be.

I felt a sense of peace, my spirit spoke to me from within.                                                                                                                   I saw the purity that lives within us all.                                                                                                                                                        I saw the questions we sometimes have,                                                                                                                                                Will I stand or will I fall?

I saw the fight for survival.                                                                                                                                                                               A cry for help.                                                                                                                                                                                                          I saw our limitations to succeed;                                                                                                                                                                That we have all frequently felt.

I felt the energy we could use,                                                                                                                                                                       To get the things, we think we need.                                                                                                                                                                I felt the energy we could use,                                                                                                                                                                         To turn a flower, back into a seed.

I felt the emptiness we feel,                                                                                                                                                                       When we think we are all alone.                                                                                                                                                                        I saw this world just as an illusion,                                                                                                                                                                A temporary place, we now call our home.

Several questions                                                                                                                                                                                                Stayed in my mind,                                                                                                                                                                                           Why are we so lost?                                                                                                                                                                                           And, are we running out of time?

I pondered these questions,                                                                                                                                                                       Over and over again.                                                                                                                                                                                          Do we stay the way we are?                                                                                                                                                                        Or will we bring this chaos, to an end?

My spirit spoke to me,                                                                                                                                                                                     Softly, but clear.                                                                                                                                                                                             Listen to what I say,                                                                                                                                                                                         And, this is what I want you to hear.

I share this gift with you,                                                                                                                                                                                   A blessing I received one day.                                                                                                                                                                          Pray to see others in the light,                                                                                                                                                                    And, in a spiritually loving way.

The Soul Within

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,
Charlette Marie
