What Seek ye?

Chrish is a poetry writer who loves to paint, nature and dog lover, who write for herself and happy to share it with you.


The sun is settling in and the red sky

Slowly embracing the universe

Its different, I'm sure it isn't like the other days

It's mysterious and wordless

And here's the gusting wind again

Whispering outside the windows

Slowly I close my eyes, trying to focus

Calming my heart, keeping the silence

As I breath in and out

Throwing all the useless empty thoughts

Trying to keep it in peace

It feels like I'm waiting for something

I long to hear

Or something I long to feel

Then suddenly the thick clouds in my head

Slowly fading in motion, and there I found myself

In deep wonder

I have put my heart on His great palm

Saying I trust all your plans

And not in mine, I said, whatever it takes

I know there'll be time it'll break my heart

Still, I trust Your plans

You have my heart in You, and Yours in mine

And that's my confidence

To where your footprints it's where I'm going

It feels like I'm wholly committed

But often I make mistakes

Or should I say unrighteousness?

Or should I call it a sin?

I thought once I give it all to You

My worldly satanic thoughts will eventually

Leave like that,

But then You said, as you follow My steps

On earth it is defined as poverty, few of your

Friends will leave you, because to some you're boring

And killjoy, they don't like you being around

For their demons are triggered by your presence

And they feel guilty when you speak a word

These, will make you feel wretched

They won't understand, and sometimes they just

Simply don't want to understand

You will struggle more, and suffer more

You will be shaken, you will weep

Your heart will often ache

And enermous temptations will fall upon you

It will always will as you follow My steps

You will be very lonely, it will make you feel like endless

But you will never be alone in these,

Your heart is in Me, remember?

And Mine is in you, remember?

Whatever you feel I feeleth

Having Me in you, and you in Me

Doesn't meaneth you will never weep

Nor mourn, it means you will never be alone

I know you know what these meaneth

You've been there, remember those days

After pushing the boulder alone?

Back then you were so lonely, your heart is too heavy

However you keep on going anyway

Your knees were shaken as you climb those mountains

I was there,

And when your tears fall down from your face

I sit beside you, and you exhaustedly lie your

Head on My shoulder

And said, You are my comfort and my great rescue

How does the smell of the air on the top

Of the mountain taste like? and how does the world

Looks like up there?

Do you still can feel the weight of your pain?

Or the world's burden?

I will give you rest the world can never give to you.

It was oh so silent, if only I could just stay there

Where the tranquility is so pure, and the only place

I can feel my soul exist, and as I wait in slow motion wonder

Silence filled my heart so much that I could choose

Not to ever open my eyes

That as if it has been so empty and thirst

And this is what exactly I long for

My heart and soul knows what it was

And it feels like I was embraced in a great place

Of unknown, and suddenly I hear a voice again


Where there is silence and peace

It's where you can find me,

Where stars are shinning,

It's where you can sit with me

Where wether the moon is conceal

Or can be seen, it's where you can sing with me

Where the fiery sun is rising in motion

And an open blue sky above,

Where the wind gusting through the mountain side

Whispering across the fields and hills,

It's either beneath the patient moon

Nor the fiery sun, or beside the seashore

Or at the foot of the mountains

Or beneath the green trees

As long as there is an open sky

And the trees who shelter, and the wind who whisper

And the music of the sea, the fields and hills

It's where you can find me

For these are the sacred scenes of the universe

I so loved, and it's where you can only see me

Where hearts can find rest and the mind in peace

Have you still heareth these holy music?

And feeleth the Holy shelter?

Or are you in a great need for healing and refuge

From the chaos, noisence and confusions

of the crowded miserable city?

Where the blue heavens become gray and so lonely

The grassy hillside become dried,

The music of the sea is mourning day and night

And the green leafy trees become leafless

For people prayeth but not with heart

And liveth in hate

All the natural heavenly scenes

The beauty of its first morn

You chose to close your eyes

And run fast

Away from the sacred music of the sea,

You surrounded yourselves

With so much noise and wants

You've run so far, so much that you could not reach me

It's been a long time, come sit with Me

And give Me your heart

And I will give ye rest.
