Your Words Poem by Mike Barrett

Your Words

Rating: 4.8


Were I to hold you
In any degree of esteem, of respect,
Your words might hurt –
Twisting like daggers
Within one’s mind, one’s Soul.
But I don’t
So they can’t –
Water on a duck’s back
They are –
Water flowing back
To the Ocean of Love and Mercy,
A place where you too
One day in eternity
Shall bathe –
Immersed in the joy and love
Of the great IT IS.

IT is infinitely forgiving,
Infinitely loving.

IT’s blessings await you
But it’s up to you –
You must prepare.



In our eternal unfoldment
We neither command
Our moments of realization,
Nor IT’s blessings,
We earn them.

IT’s gifts are granted
Solely in accordance with
With IT’s will,
At the time of IT’s choosing.

Today, to you, these words may mean nothing –
But one day, in this life, or in another lifetime yet to be,
Their truth will, in a moment of grace, be realized.

May the blessings be!

Hello Mike a great poem really enjoyed reading it. Sometimes people forget words can hurt as much as or even more than a slap because they hit the soul and leave unseen scars than can stunt personal growth

Words shouldn't be hurled to cause hurt, but to comfort and heal! Words which reflect love can work wonders! How I wish if everyone had read this poem where words of lyrical beauty unravel perennial truths! ! Reading this, I get the cool feeling of having bathed in resurgent waters! ! I invite you to read my poem Nuggets of Wisdom- No.1(On Words)

Hi Clarence, thanks for input.....much appreciated! I've not been very active on this site for some tome....I'll have to get back to it. I'll check out some of your poetry later and leave a comment or two. Today I'm busy with a Lynda.com tutorial on the new Windows 10 since I plan to switch over to it soon. Cheers!

Hi Ramesh, I'm happy that this poem has touched your higher self.....it's important in life that Soul (one's higher self) understands that It is perceiver and interpreter of all external stimuli. The quicker Soul gets into the driver's seat of one's life, the more it can learn and continue growing Its eternal knowingness. Thanks for your comment and I shall review your poem Words within the next day or two. Cheers!
