Double edged

And she sat in the fading light
Suddenly questioning
Right from wrong,
What did you steal as a child….
What is it that haunts you
As days go by too very quickly
And the answer that came
Was simply a Book.
Just a paperback
Religious style songs but not quite,
Songs of happiness I tried to learn,
Summer camp
Jesus reigned supreme,
Not as he lays in my thoughts currently but then
The fear was in the heart to tow the line
and I wanted to fit in
But I didn’t know the word so I took
This little blue book
And I hid it
To memorize the words
To feel as one but it didn’t happen
Once gone I was set adrift
Back to the what is and my piece of life
And I felt shamed
I threw it out in fear
Because I wasn’t a thief
I was only lonely
And thirty plus years go by
And I wonder why now
Do these thoughts come to me?
Penance? Closures or a reminder of the known
That no words can make you part of the whole,
Only heart and soul
and no longer a child,
No longer fearful of what I no longer believe,
Strong in unity with my universal whole
Whole with decisions
Stolen in lack of life
Given now in truth of knowledge for who I am
No longer afraid
Of fitting in.

I am a sometimes poet on a quest to master the universe of my mind. My writing runs the gamut of nature, off beat, life and basically the world as I see it through the windows of my eyes. Welcome to my blog. Sit a spell in your big comfy armchair or favorite spot and read for a while if it suits and don't forget to leave a comment to let me know who you are and all that jazz. Looking forward to what each day brings and catch you on the flip side of the stars. Peace and blessings.
