Was Always There (tanka)

Updated on July 8, 2013

It was always there

Though imagined places searched

Unknown waters lurched

While it waited hopefully

The answer about one’s self

      Powerful. People just forget to look inside. The expect inspiration and help to come from other sources like their church or books.

      It is very powerful to truly look deep within ourselves, no doubt, and reflect on precisely the thought of . . . just who we are really.

      God bless, Faith Reaper
