Uriah Hamilton


You And I Will Suffer - Poem by Uriah Hamilton

You and I
Will suffer through terrible abuse
To our inner child,
Our spiritual psyche, our real self
If we fail to find release
From our own negative perceptions,
Unless we truly desire to escape from emotional prisons
Of self judgments, unrelenting
Critical eye of condemnation,
Corrupted by estimations of ourselves
Based on unrealistic societal standards.

We learn generous forgiveness for those
Who violate us but never learn
To forgive ourselves and be healed
Of self-violation.

    You arrived here about the same time as moi Uriah, way back when. You have always had a handle on my soul. A deep write, I do hope we find a way one day. Smiling at you, Tai (Report) Reply
