Born Again

My mind is at ease,
peaceful as can be.
There is a calm.
I am free.

My heart is whole again,
pure as it should be,
not poisoned by the weight of this world.
I am free.

My soul is singing a song of freedom,
not caged up like an animal that should be out in nature.
I can spread my wings and fly.
I am free.

God is my light.
Today I prayed from my heart
without weight or compromise.
I am finally free.

You Don’t Know

You don’t know what it’s like
to have your heart bleed out,
to be soaked in blood,
and swinging from a string.

You don’t know what it’s like
being scared to death,
looking around; searching for help
but the only help that comes
doesn’t understand your pain.

Thanks and Praise

Before I open
my calculated eyes in the mornings,
the first thing that comes out
of the meditation
of my heart
are words
of praise and thanksgiving.

Not to ask for anything
but to “simply” say
“thank you Lord
for all Your blessings”.
