Mystified by Truth


Poem Commentary

Poetry Survivor March-week 2 submission

Mystified by Truth

I heard the whisper of an angel
In the cold dark of night
In a time of despair
Elements of nature
Hushed my mind and opened my heart

Stepping out into the evening air
I have sought out the light
Mystified by the truth
I succumbed to the stars
And surrendered my forsaken soul

Granted this one whimsical moment
I took heed to her words
Be gentle, kind, be true
For your life’s transgressions
Have been reprieved by your own conscious pain

In an instant, I was left alone
To face another day
Mystified by truth
But now self aware and
Confident in the break of dawns new light

Dawn, There so so much in truth that we contemplate and answers we look for. Your search for truth took many paths and much thought in a poem I find mesmerizing. ginga

There's nothing more divine than finding the strength to climb inside yourself and find your own inner peace. This is beautiful in it's spirituality and it's inspiring nature, Dawn. Great job :)

Poetry comes nearer to vital truth than history.
