That Spring Within
That Spring Within
By Tony DeLorger © 2013
Penning what resides within my soul,
I can but wonder what is seen,
the unrequited thoughts of an open heart,
able to find freedom in expression.
What often surfaces is a surprise to me,
deeply buried within me,
in the darkest hidden recesses,
finding light and ascension in a surge of self-introspection.
Truths and feelings rise like crystal springs,
yearning for sunlight and an expanse of form,
flowing out into the world uninhibited,
and with the kindest intent.
How often I wonder how I am perceived,
heart on sleeve, words set free,
and consider for a moment, I am but a pariah of dreams,
a singular voice seeking understanding and recognition.
In my heart the noblest of intentions guide my words,
always the voices of my conscience and moral limits,
given in hope of acknowledgement,
to somehow sway the anger and contention of a world in darkness.
The words my sword, my sentiments the missing puzzle pieces,
I plead loving kindness and consideration,
and the surrender of hateful minds, rather the pursuit of dreams,
and all of worth in this world of endless expectation.
Within that spring rises all that is me,
limited only by what judgement is placed upon it,
searching in earnest for harmony and a peaceful life,
in the beauty of realising potential.
What I think, what I write and what I am comes from a soul attuned to what makes us human, vulnerable and powerful in our quest to live in peace.
