The Journey Inward

Stripped of all trappings,
expectant eyes obscured,
with wavering courage,
the journey within begins.
Each small, hesitant step inward
sharpens the vision.
The urgent quest for inner knowing and truth
illuminates the narrow path.
Spirit is bathed with unsuspecting calm.
Naked truths are revealed.
This inner sanctuary owns all secrets.
Through blurred eyes, names appear,
etched in gold on the heart's inner walls.
So many names of loved ones,
each filling this space with untold joy.
The search for answers continues.
No big homes, no fancy cars,
no sparkling diamonds reside
within these walls.
This humble soul receives its
well deserved gift
bestowed by the heart.
Love is the key to life
giving, receiving
Therein lies the joy
and the only true reason for being.
