The Cleanse

Water droplets
Originally uploaded by Pittam.

I keep many words in me

Some feelings are hard to reveal

Yet I wish I am a transparent face

So the truthful of who I am can be read on a first glimpse

I store many tears in me

These tears are not on the edge of my eyes

Carved so deep in me

Some pain are better off untold

Though, it's not a cavalry on my side

I believe that justice will come from God

His Mercy will not let wrong be wrong forever

The heaven fairness will rule on its own set time

Maybe or maybe not I will witness the fall

All I need now to cleanse my heart

I'm tired of having grudges inside

I want my soul to live the rest of its days so pure

Uncontaminated from hate and lies

Can I stand inhaling only fresh air of life?

Sadly, I can not sieve the air

Yet its not a reason to surrender

Drat, that was me.. one of these days will figure out how this effin computer system actually works.

I wrote a sort of poem in reply, looked at it but didn't like the format, so thought I'd "save" it, re-write and repost. Arrrgh!, it somehow didn't save .. or copy, or whatever.

the internet
is a fleeting thing.
it can sing
with passion
and compassion
or, forsooth
with truth.

but each of us
throughout time
live within the pod
supreme, sublime
of god.

Nasra, Can only send my words of encouragement, for whatever they are worth.
Cheers and best wishes, D
