Like the waves of the sea,
You seek to erode my emotions,
Bringing in tides of fear and despair,
To cause distortions
Like water without salt
You take the savor of my peace,
Replacing it with seaweeds of deadness,
Sadness and grief!
Don’t you know the ocean claps her hands?
At my praise to God on high,
While its shores hold my tears and kiss it
So softly to the skies
Like photosynthesis, it evaporates
Into golden vessels carried by angels above,
Placed on the altar of incense
Surrounded by his love.
So let the waves roar, and make the tides ride,
For my tears have a language
That only heaven can transcribe.
Reflections for the poem “Ocean of tears.”
Fear is the enemy that everybody has to deal with daily. It always lurks over our shoulders, waiting for an opportunity to come into our hearts, to distort our perceptions. By finding a path through our belief systems, it executes its destructive devices on our hearts, soul, and minds, frequently leaving us vulnerable to life’s many pitfalls. Our faith will never stand without the opposition of fear. So continues in “Purpose Within Every Promise,” a poetry anthology that reaches you wherever you are in life, bookend by words of wisdom, which is food for the soul. Now on sale on Amazon
