FREEDOM

Slowly my eyes open to the morning
I rub away the memories of yesterday
The new day drops into my vision
I greet it with all that I have within me

I rub away the memories of yesterday
A blank page sits before me
I greet it with all that I have within me
What will my life write today?

A blank page sits before me
White unblemished stain free
What will my life write today?
All creation sits in my fingers

White unblemished stain free
Nothing to tarnish the life in my soul
All creation sits in my fingers
I hold it now with holy awe

Nothing to tarnish the life in my soul
Freedom fills the space that I made
I hold it now with holy awe
Ready to dwell in this sacred space

Freedom fills the space that I made
My wings have grown strong and soon I will fly
I hold them now with holy awe
Poised in anticipation of the flight

My wings have grown strong and soon I will fly
Though the world hangs heavy around my neck
Poised in anticipation of the flight
I break through the barriers make this new space

Though the world hangs heavy around my neck
I’m light as a dewdrop within my soul
Slowly my eyes open to the morning
I rub away the memories of yesterday

    Thanks Debirah. It just came to me as I awoke thus morning. I just got the first line furst, and I had no idea where it was going, then each line came as I went along. I liked the play on the idea of vision, as I only have in er vision, not physical vision. Xoxo

    That’s blown me away, Lorraine! ” … light as a dewdrop within my soul …” Wonderful words. This poem is a great message to us all – I read it as being ‘stain free’ through the forgiveness and grace of God and that each day is a fresh beginning … and I love how the new day’s blank page providing the opportunity to write something unique represents that. I’ve rambled on … perhaps best to just read your poem which says it all! 😀

    Aww thankyou so much Lesley. I am so very glad that those wirds spoke to you so much. I wrote it very very early this morning when I woke up to the freezing fog lol. And I thought to myself “out pen to paper. It is still a new day.” And I got the first line and the rest just followed. So happy that you liked it so much.
