Freedom From Denial and Doubt

I have stumbled across a new passion: writing. It is proving to be insightful and rewarding.


I’m sad to say I look at life from behind a veil of denial.
I watch the experience unfold before me,
Afraid to venture far without any remorse.
I take care to hide my thoughts and feelings.

Travel with me if you will, you say.
Come along for the ride.
Surrender and be still.
Stay close by my side.

You rein me in with your compassion.
You are ever patient with me.
Life is some times more than I bargained for.
When will I trust myself enough to let go of all the insecurities?

Where will the understanding come from?
Will it come from you, or perhaps through the message in a song.
Maybe if I listen carefully I will allow the words to penetrate my soul with the melody to keep me company. I’ll have to pay attention and confiscate the moment.

I will hold it close to my heart.
But no one is present to be my witness.
Will you please tell me if trust is equal to faith?
Do the angels sprinkle trust on their wings as they whisper to set you free?

Doesn’t growth and healing come with responsibility to trust?
Holding space for trust fills the void.
Doesn’t faith equal trust?
Will I ever find trust in the truth?

I believe surrender is key to conquer the depths of denials.
Treading with trust is reassuring.
I hope to disappear and sail away with the angels,
That purpose being on the horizon of my mind.
