Spirit Said

Spirit Said,
"You are a beautiful being of light"
and I said
"But it seems so dark, I have no sight"

Spirit Said,
"Your soul is perfect right now"
and I said
"But I have so much to do, so many more vows"

Spirit Said,
"You're learning your lessons well"
and I said
"But I mess up constantly, I can never tell!"

Spirit Said,
"You are a gift to all you meet"
and I said
"But I have conflicts, troublesome relationships I repeat!"

Spirit Said,
"Your heart is open as wide as the sky"
and I said
"I've been so hurt, I'm always asking why"

Spirit Said,
"I speak the truth, Listen to my voice"
and I said
"If it was all true, I would certainly rejoice"

I said
"Spirit, I ask for signs. Ways to cope,
days to be happier, glimmers of hope.
But I feel lost, I can't find my way.
Why can't I understand what you say?"

Spirit Said,
"You are beautiful, sparkling, glowing in spectacular brilliance.
I am amazed by you and admire your resilience!
You have made it through the lessons so far,
I see, hear and know you for what you are.

But the only way you know that you are all these things I say
is to believe in you, your story, your mission, every day.
Others will try to sway you, they may try to steal your spark,
because you are beacon, shining light on the dark.

Now it is your turn, believe what I speak,
you are wonderful, smart and completely unique."

I paused, and sighed, Spirit was right
no more hiding my inner light
now it is my turn, I know what I have to do
following my path is long overdue
and so to Spirit, I say,
Thank You

This is a great poem. It sounds like the inner battle in each of us. We all fall short of being perfect, so we must deal with the mistakes we make, and try not to dwell on them.

You have a natural gift to lift people up without being sarcastic. I think I am learning somthing from you.
