Treasure Island

Flencirose Basera

Curled up!

At times within myself multiple feelings arise!
Anger, frustrations, love, compassion and hopelessness.
How do I address a paradigm of emotions?
Without forgetting myself!

When I obliterate all!
And go on my personal journey!
A journey I move alone-not by choice!
My journey to approach the trinity!

As I put aside all personal desires!
And forget myself totally!
And lift the plight of my beloved!
And present my case to the Holy One!

I partake my journey in loneliness!
I ask for courage, wisdom, grace, mercy and protection!
Like my siblings and parents!
Our voices are raised to the Holy One!

Shed not any tears!
Doubt not His power!
Present your case to the most high!
Plead the blood of Jesus!

With grace and mercy we will receive!
I for one has withdrawn into myself!
To be in sync with my trinity!
Only to speak on my holy language!

Only my God can hear!
Only my Jesus will answer!
Only my Holy Spirit will intercede!
Engulf me!

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
