a gift given

 It is in the gift of giving I find joy – a poem for open link night dVerse.

 

Sometimes you are given a gift,

a chance to turn around and face your shadows.

The opportunity to begin again, or right a wrong

when but a moment ago you were lost

and now you are found.

Having searched a lifetime

trying to manifest illusions

Was it really you?

Seeking what you could not find

no matter where your body

or your mind might wander

Was it really you?

Leaving a trail of littered dreams,

half empty schemes,

in fields of if onlys and could have beens

Of course, it wasn’t really you!

For all the while you’ve been right here.

this very place you have been guided to,

the circles ever growing smaller and entwined

in the universal loving hand of Spirit,

who only knows you as you are right now

Your gift is you, the silent you.

Going inward has set you free

to do, to act, to be.

In the universal wisdom

you have landed where you left off

with nothing more than you’ve always had,

the God given ability to see within you,

where you are in love with the world

you have created,

for you truly now,

in your knowing

are where you have always wanted to be

believing in love,

believing in me

being

    We should never squander such a gift, as it is rare, indeed. Profound and lovely bit of writing, thank you for sharing.

  2. This is really an inspiring poem with a positive message. I especially like the idea that going inward can set a person free, and I also like the last three lines!
