I came slowly along the trail before me set.
My intentions were to accomplish what I must…with Love.
An emptiness embroidered in the shadowed edges,
Left to abstract reflections, contrasts to….
An enduring hope, the soul has kept alive,
That somehow, I might earn the grace I lost
Before embarking from this world of living and dying.
I withstood the winds and perils of youth
Believing there was a place the Angels guarded
Where I would arrive, with the many gifts my life awarded;
Able to share the fruits of goodness, then move forward.
But I have been self-deluded by my own slow efforts;
Side-tracked by diversion…and jealous saboteurs.
Now, in this little time left, shall I arrive,
Unprepared for acceptance in that harbor
Safe in Heaven where I’m expected?
If I’m unable to accomplish what tasks
Inspiration has given, will I lose
The chance to overcome
The error of my ways…never evil,
But arrogant and ungrateful.
Wanting affection they could not give.
I’ve only wished…to do my best here,
With a life fragmented from conception.
Hope was not an option. Broken-hearted,
Reeling… still…I am offering my being,
As a sacrifice….to all with feelings…
A panacea. For a life well lived
Is like a bell that rings forever.
The sound encrypted in our collective soul,
Enriching Humanity’s potential.
To see that great Festival of Salvation coming;
To hear the joyful sounds of Angels triumphant
Bringing in, the Lords of Creation,
Adorned in flowers, annointed and so blessed…
To see the Paradice for which this world
Was lovingly prepared, and which was lost,
At last the promice kept. Give me a kiss!!!…
This human soul at last restored to bliss.
We have survived through many challenges and tests.
Then, reaching to step up and claim we did our best…
When along the Trail…we continue, thru these milleniums.
