Poetry Blogs (enlightenment)
Every time I think I have become enlightened and can handle anything, a new challenge shows up to test me. Whether it's toxicity in my body, family illness or death, rejection of a lover, friend, stranger, job, point of view, whatever... ego is the first to show up on the scene, like a paramedic giving CPR to revive my pride. Pride dies, only to come back a little weaker next round, like a cat wit...

We walk a
fine line in
as they are,
miss the idiosyncrasies
of body language
that convey sincerity

Formed from a love that was given to us...

to understand Your Divine plan
and live it through with no complaint...

i will not be scorched
by the flame of another
i shall keep my fire
fueled only by the pure
kindling found deep
within the terrain
of my wooded home

I cannot find or name]
no light save by the moon
on occasion when it
