Coming face to face with self
Sharon y. bishop©2008

As I awake early and lay in my bed,
I wrestled with all of these thoughts
in my head.

The why, the how,the what, the who,
What Oh Lord, am I suppose to do!

Then I listen for the sweet soft voice of the gentle man,
the inner man,who took the place of the sinner man.

Hold still now child,
collect yourself and breath.
he speaks to my heart
the words within.

Every woman's man has to someday,
in some way,
take his own hand,make his own stand,
and find his own path,his voice,
his own words to say.

Dig deep into your being
to find yourself.
Turn over ever stone,
 every cell,
every organ,
 until nothing is left!

Find your very soul,
the part you can feel so deep inside,
until it makes your eyes cry,
a river of wet, sweat and tears,
cry until all your fears
have been released
and they cease
to exist.

Cry until they no longer
 hold any power over you,
until they no longer need to.

Then and only then
 will you be able to clearly see
 your destiny.
The place in time
 where you were born to be!

The place in time and space,
where you have fullness of grace.
That breaths that smell so sweetness,
as it rolls off your lips,
and moves your hips,
at the same time.

Then and only then,
is when and only when,
 the pure and free meet soul to soul.
And boast of the things you feel,
the things you see,
the things that are real.

Then and only then will your life
have the true st meaning of time.
The deepest meaning of your mind.
The center of your universe.
It can't be learned, taught, or rehearshed.
It is a gift.

It only comes when you yeild your very being
to know your true st meaning.
It is infact the ultimate cleansing of your soul,
For then and only then will you meet your true st goal--
of time.
Then and only then will you truly know--
your own mind.

And once you find this place,
you can begin to walk slowly,and smell the roses,
no longer must you race, or strive at a swift pace.
Because you have finally come face to face,
with yourself!

Then the outer you
 meets the inner you,
 and become one.
And yes, life and getting there
was suppose to be half the fun.
It was in the beginning a gift from
 the father and the son.
And once you reach that place
your greatest journey has just begun.

Great work Sharon.
I agree with you:Until we get to know our selves,accept ourselves and love ourselves where we are, we cannot become who we were meant to be.
It is indeed a long journey.
Thanks and continued success~
