The Truth Upon My Heart

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


Upon the land, the sun doth shine.

I ponder the light and relax my mind.

As I feel the warmth on my face,

I am grateful for a higher place.

My thoughts wander from my learning lessons,

To a favorite spirit-soul who keeps me expressing.

I follow a path that guides my sight,

Ever onward towards a brighter light.

I want what is lingering just out of reach.

No! The ever loving spirit-soul will teach,

That is no longer you,

What you want is forever true.

Forever true,

A forever truth to guide me,

To sustain me, to love me, to uplift me.

A self-loving truth now lives within me.

To look behind would no longer serve you.

Remember to always look forward to the light,

You’ll always find what you’re searching for

Waiting in the eternal loving light.

You may not see it,

But you will always feel it.

So when you are tempted or stray from your course,

Look for the light at it’s never ending source!
