I Confess, My Lord

Rating: 5.0

I confess, my Lord,
I'm no more of a believer than anyone else.
My sorrow is just like other sorrows, an endless journey to the unknown,
As is happiness; an invisible icon of life,
As is loneliness; the greatest monument to humility,
As are other emotions; invisible to the eye,
But so very visible to the human soul;

Oh, dear Lord, give me the strength to face the man in the mirror,
Like other dreamers; please be my fellow sufferer and traveller

On the road of dreams,

As are other emotions; invisible to the eye, But so very visible to the human soul; I love this line... From the badlands of the soul to the magnificent lovers' fountains, From white solitary... ...to endless horizons of love, From heart to heart, So that my own lonely heart Finds the safe harbour of a loving heart, ...And the contrasts depicted above... signaling HOPE May you find your safe harbour. Well done!

Dear people, if you only knew how cold it is To be alone in such a holy silent night... My song is my coat, and angels are my family, I have no father, no mother, to have a sister is a mere wish - Oh, me, an abandoned boy, sadly wandering around! Very touching and heart-wrenching. He is our constant companion in a world where sometimes those around us don't understand. Blessing to you. Big 10

beautiful confession to the Almighty- Oh, dear Lord, I confess: It was only yesterday when I was a flagbearer for hope, And today... today I'm but an aged servant of the feather, Like a weather vane on top of the world, /// the servant of the feather like a weather vane on top of the world// touches me interestingly

I relate to much of this, Walter. What comes to mind right away are Ps 34, which I’ve been memorizing, and what it means to be Israel (or ysra-el) , one who wrestles with God, one who knows God is and in that knowledge confesses, speaks, complains... for all is heard by God who pities us as a parent and knows that we are dust. -Glen

Classic! Beautiful verse! I agree with Valsa, this poem is very...very deep and full of meaning(compassion) ..Yes, very eloquent verse..I feel the sadness, but I also see a poet who has a grasp of and the vocabulary to put those feelings into a form easy to understand. Exceelent work.
