Supplication - Poem by G.R. Gaus

Angels touch this fragile heart,
Calm my yearning thought,
Peace return within this soul,
Remember once long forgot.

Born into this life of doubt,
A natural child of purity,
Youth applied peer pressure,
Creating a false security.

Lost myself along the way,
Listening to another kind,
Many years to understand,
That I can't trust my mind.

In the heart, truth be found,
No need to look beyond,
Deep within, the sacred space,
Both spirit and matter bond.

Alone I stand in mercy,
Alone I face regret,
Together we'll continue,
Alone I pay my debt.

So if the Angels hear,
My silent call to thee,
Spread thy wings around,
This empty life; set free.


Poet's Notes about The Poem

We all begin this life pure and innocent, somewhere in our youth we become subject to peer pressure and that can change everything for many years until hopefully we outgrow the foolishness and see the error of our ways…..
