I

sunrise potentilla

I have been what I am not,

I have spurned what I’ve been taught;

I have buried what’s alive,

I have fed what should have died.

I have worn denial’s ring,

I have crowned deception king;

I have shouted silent lies,

I have swallowed truthful cries.

I have welcomed midnight thieves,

I have broken boundaries;

Could you love one such as I?

Yes, My love, My precious child –

I have waited long for you,

I became a child to prove

My love is big enough to free

you from yourself, so come to Β Me.”Β

    This poem simply encapsulates the fragility of the human soul, I love it!

  2. Beautiful, beautiful! Both your picture and poem have captured the Light of Christmas in a deeply touching manner.

    This just proves once again, that these sites need a “love” button because “like” just isn’t enough.

    Oh gosh, Melody–if there were a “Poem of the Year” deal, this would surely be it. I simply must keep a copy–it’s too, it’s so–obviously I’m at a loss for words (rare event, should make the 6 o’clock news).

    You have been on fire that last couple of days, but this one tops them all, made me tear up. To me this poem was all about truth and acknowledging the truth will set us free.
