(929) Within - Poem by Melvina Germain

Confront your dark side head on.
Deal with the demons that hide within.
It’s difficult to know where to begin.
Start with the feelings you have of others,
your friends, sisters, and your brothers.

It’s time to open your eyes and look deep inside.
After all you do have some pride.
Hold your head high, it takes a big person, to
clean old wounds, and open closed doors.

Look to the front, look to the side, look behind,
then take a huge stride.
Your time has come to stand at the forefront.
To raise your hands high, to take a leap, for what
you are about to see, you will surely want to keep.

Cleanse your heart, speak the truth, leave nothing
untold. This is your time to stand and be bold.
Speak loud and clear, God hears you, while you
stand there.

The book will be open and you must answer, so
anti up now and take your bow. Truer words
may never be spoken and your faith must never be

    A heartfelt exhortation to do right not only to ourselves but to others as well. Self-examination is extremely important... It is so easy to get caught up in ways contrary to our beliefs. Everything begins with a thought... (Report)Reply

    Melvina, you always take me by the scruff of the neck and show me what I should be doing and somehow never do. I liked this. Excellent as always. Thanks for sharing it.

    Your sentiments are echoed in mine....similar poem penned-The Devil Within.
    Well said...the opening line is a puncher!
