The answers we forget

Updated on June 17, 2014
Source


I run my mind back to my memories.

That falls from the heights of tall waters.

For I need to search for hopeful answers.

I walk the distant mile of my mind.

I question my help to come forth.

I come closer to answering my pain in doubt.

My answers could come still or fast as charging light.

I soothe my mind with colorful thoughts.

I imagine an oasis in my clouded mind.

Blue pools of chocolate,

Violet leaves in rippling expanding circles,

A white tiger’s paw touches its streams.

I call my mind to come closer to find.

I tell my mind to teach me things to reward life.

Bounties grow when knowledge is free.

Bounties grow when the mind believes.

Bounties grow in mind that earns love.

Just like time that drips its pressing moments

In times of my trembling thoughts,

I drift towards oblivion waters in the stronghold of my mind.

I relate to fear……

Fear of not knowing.

I believe that we are all born with all the answers to the problems we face.

But the answers fade with time and age.

I look to my soul to find the truth.

There I will find the answers shrouded by the dust of my insight.

      "I look to my soul to find the truth", Yes, and there in are the answers. May be they will be awakened by the paw on the water or the rippling leaves, or may be when the dust of insight is lifted, we can peer at the layer of time beneath and see the truths we seek. You are very deep Shamela. Stay blessed and keep writing.
