Yours - Poem by Jack Growden

Yours is a mind hampered by query
And an outlook anxious and dire
Foreseen through aching eyes so weary.
You have conjured many a theory:
I have heard them all at some stage prior.

Yours is a conscience struggling to cope
And a heart that is suffering thus.
Once vivacious, boasting boundless hope;
Now plummeting down a foreign slope
Though you opt to paint it and not discuss.

Yours is a spirit devoid of charm
Yet you hide behind feeble defence.
Reciting one meek biblical psalm
Will not rid you of a single qualm,
And your hollow words are impotent hence.

Yours is a case which one can suppress
Though it is a weak man who ignores
That there are problems he must address.
So rescind your false act and confess,
Then conquer these meddlesome woes of yours.

    Jack, well done. On the road to self and God realization Soul is tested again and again. Easier to face and learn the lessons in a current lifetime, but little matter, if not learned in a current lifetime they can still be learned in the next, or the next or the next - ad infinitum. Cheers! (Report) Reply
