PAINTING WITH WORDS POETRY: Wisdom Pearls.
He grew up hurt and mostly disenchanted
Yet he found a self healing way to mend his world
With his once broken heart he took his chances
And found love as beautiful and precious as pearls.
As life moved the pearls became chipped and broken
And once again he found his world split in two
He buried his pain deep and left them unspoken
Though friends he had, he gave his heart to few.
God saw his pain and sent Angels in great disguise
Teaching him to let go and look deep with his soul
Seeking truth of himself and forgiving all the lies
Learning to loves one’s self to become whole.
He takes another look around, as the healing begins,
And finds the old pearls still hold their sweetness
With the preciousness and beauty living deep within.
And knowing now that-great love-takes patience.
