Confession of sky

Here lies the confession of sky
in silence asking I feel
how it suffers and bleeds
throughout its kingdom
the sun's need to be seen
and passion and beauty known
by all of mankind down below.

And I suffer the beauty in me
forced to witness disease
and the stop/start trails of pain and heartache
inexhaustibly present on earth
until I can know the value and worth
of absorbing the all and then more.

Then can I say I’m the sum of all states
streaked with what I can take
unbound by the statute of limitation
in the kingdom of soul energy?

And my confession I hasten to say,
is my growing need to believe
within is the power to rise like the sun
into the kingdom of God’s ever love!

  1. It is strange how much of the world we were protected from in childhood. All the stress, and all the hurting and suffering in the world. Then we reach an age of some understanding and we begin to question it all. The suffering so huge and mankind so corrupt by evil that we can only suffer in our hearts, and do the best we can with what resources we have. Yet with hope in what God has planned and has ordained we pray some day we will all live in his Peace.

    The art and poem is excellent.
    Great write Helen.
