Today's Wisdom Poem by Godfrey Morris

Today's Wisdom

Rating: 4.8

As I look at life's closed hour-glass

Of all the errors past

I Imagined how things could have been

If sands had shifted fast

But then life, is just a drifting scene

With time a story came to being

Did you know the mind can see?

Even pass the dark blue sea

Do you know the soul can hear?

Even to a silent tear

There only need to set mind free

And then there be a light

A light so full of timeless glee

To ignite a flame in thee

Which warms the soul

To make you whole

Did you know the soul can feel?

Once you have that light

Your conscience will be healed

That day you ‘ll have your sight

Beautiful and inspiring poem! Love how our souls speak to us in such gentle whispers through our interior lives, always live there while writing poetry and listening to music. Identify greatly with this poem and it's serenity and I do know the Divine lives in this bluened atmosphere. Thank you so much for sharing this soothing wisdom with us. RoseAnn

This is a very good poem.It brings a lot of things to light.We are such complicated spiritual beings who have long forgotten why or how we are supposed to use these hidden tools inside of us. We only catch a glimpse of our potential for brief instances and then we soon forget and write the experiences off as mere coincidences.One day we will all see clear.
