To Set One Free - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

If there is no true serenity
In the divinity that is being fed,
Or preached.
And it does not release one
From their shackles
To experience the higher self,
As meant to be!
To set one free...
To be as one should be!
It should be abandoned immediately!
And one should seek the truth...
Only a personal journey can deliver!
God will ALWAYS be there to guide that faith,
That comes from within!
One can not be broken,
When the heart still beats...
To afford one a chance to mend,
With all that has been sent and given!
