Soul Searching

By EDWIN FLORES, www.PoetryPoem.com/poetry2231    Unlock all Features - Upgrade to Poetry Prime

Inside of me a search now becomes
A quest to believe that I am someone
The gauntlet now thrown falls to my feet
The past and the present filled with defeat

Yet the search still goes on to bring long sought rest
There where His presence brings out my best
A chance to become all I can be
All that GOD knows and sees still of me

Painful the struggle that burdens my mind
Heavy its weight seems as if time
Has taken its toll, bitten and chewed
Wayward this soul of good it once knew

Harder becomes to see through this journey
As wheeled past right by me is my soul on a gurney
Lost and abandoned I reach out to stop
The soul I remember to some meant a lot

The voice that cried out in wilderness calls
To rise yet again dear son and stand tall
For great are my plans that I have for thee
Take hold of my hand and you too will see

In you there is work, much work to be done
Your soul I have found, as too did my son
