"Every Scar Is A Lesson ~ by Fearless Soul"
Her feet stumble across many pathways that break her heart.
but the lessons that come back
are worth the reason.
For each detour takes her closer
to the route where God
wants her footsteps to walk.
A place far better
than her imagination can dream
where her life will soar
until he calls her home.
A String Of Letters
Twenty six letters of the English Alphabet
teach us a valuable lesson
to form words to speak, read or write.
Just like alphabet soup
helps a child to remember
the importance of each letter
with silly antics.
Actions come to play
as we greet one another with spoken word
teaching us a string of letters
as we learn a lesson along life’s journey.
Never realizing the importance
of each symbol
as we speak.
No regrets in life.
Just lessons learned.
Flip The Coin ~acrostic poem
At any given moment
Life tosses a coin
Preparing us for new journey
Helping us along the way
Allowing us to
Beckon a lesson
Embracing our hearts
Towards a new destination.
We call lessons
a point of wisdom
when they carry us through another day.
But our thoughts are left confused
when the mirror reflects a journey
we didn’t hope for in our heart.
We thought life was a simple journey
until we are left alone heartbroken
wondering which way to turn.
with our heart bleeding
not understanding the spoken words.
When holding on to something,
that is mentally destroying you then letting it go is the only solution.
