It all begins with one soul

beatdown, broken, hopeless

hated, unwanted, abandoned

unloved, silently dying within

down in the valley’s darkness

drowning in its own tears

unspoken words of the heart

that only Love can hear and

give answer to their call…

Movement of the soul begins

a rising to the mountain top

these souls are the unnoticed

for they do not lay claim for themselves

they are the ones whose wings cannot be seen

lighthouses whose beam of Light shines 

bright through the darkest storm

whose peace is undisturbable, their

forgiveness, compassion, and love are

poured out unconditionally upon others

even for the ones that destroyed them…

They walk silently upon this earth

in humble gratitude for the Love that

breathed Life into their death…they are God’s

Champions Of Grace.

In The Down

Written In Response To:

V.J.’s Weekly Challenge #46:  RESPONSE – For this week’s challenge, I thought it might be interesting to create a post in response to someone else’s work.

In The Down

Many year ago

I used to keep

people down

with me so I

would not be lonely

it made me feel

falsely superior to them

I was jealous because

I could see their

possibility to soar

and I didn’t want

to be left behind

though I was never able

to hold them down

for very long…

*

But one day, Grace

came to meet me

in the down, empty

death in my soul

that I may soar

to lift others up

instead of hold them

and myself down.

The Haunted Wordsmith Genre Writing Challenge – April 20, 2019

The purpose of this challenge is to push ourselves to dip our toes in other genres than we normally write in. The form of writing is up to you. 

Today’s genre and image: Haunting.

Where love seemed to live

truth became reality

secrets no longer hidden

 

Haunting is this house

vicious crimes were committed

its soul erupted in death

The Death Of Not Letting Go

NaPoWriMo Challenge 2019 – Day 18

Reena’s Exploration Challenge #83

PROMPT:

Free Verse Revolution April Writing Prompt #3 – The Things Left Behind

April’s Theme: Death

IMG_2290.PNG

When spiritual felonies are committed against us

the rape of the soul, the murder of our spirit

things that seem completely impossible to forgive

they can fester so deep with the core where light lives

manifesting into life-size weighted puppets

hanging from the ceiling of the soul

turning it upside down from light to darkness

causing a slow and painful death of spirit

when forgiveness is not the chosen way

and these puppets and their shadows

are not, through forgiveness, the things left behind.
