Gypsy Soul - Poem by Rhona McFerran

Restless, roving soul
needing, reaching, grasping
aching, antsy, anxious
impatient since birth
my soul is a gypsy
wandering the earth

I delve the depths
for spiritual solace,
that place of rest
scouting rough terrain
searching, probing, seeking
habitats humane

Empty hateful faces,
"GOD-forsaken" spaces
this place is a wasteland
breaking my heart
humanity desecrated
all falling apart

Bohemian gypsy soul
deviant, despised
traversing the expanse between
‘what is' and ‘what should be'
I long for an asylum
a better place for me

Desolate and downcast
pitifully sad nomad
feeling forgotten, abandoned
destined to roam
but soul exiles aren't forever
HE will guide me safely home

Topic(s) of this poem: faith, loneliness, longing, seeking
