A Sparrow's Thoughts.... - Poem by Eric Cockrell

we live our lives communing
with angels and demons, that
dwell within us.
whose voice do we hear?
whose image do we bear?
whose work do we do?
the most profound truths,
often so simple,
that it confuses us!
deep wisdom lies in the conversations
between real people
daring to be honest.
deep wisdom, and healing!
and the ears that have eyes,
are the wings of the eternal!

    Angels and Demons inside of us, I like that for its the strength of a great man to see everything inside of himself, and to find the balance between them. I suffer with my own demons, and try to let the angels tame me. A beautiful write, that connects with me on several levels. (Report) Reply

    We get confused because over the years we have
    Used parts of our brains less and less, so in the end
    Less and less people know what the brain can really do,
    and what it can let you see and hear. A fantastic poem.
