Sometimes we need to explore the truths that we are blind to see about our nature.

Though I struggle to believe

I am more than most perceive

In gazing through reflected eyes

In the mirror I self deceive


Is it me that lays me low?

Sabotaged by what I know?

Shackled here I canít leg go

At war with all the anger flows


Stripped and naked now I go

Toward the light that begs me home

To the shelter of your soul

The only place my love can grow


You take me in such as I am

Lonely, battered and confused

Blind to all thatís circumstance

Forgiving all Iíve failed to do


And in the quiet of your arms

In your shelter safe and warm

I close my eyes and drift to peace

A poet born, warrior deceased

Oh splendid offering!!

"And in the quiet of your arms

In your shelter safe and warm

I close my eyes and drift to peace

A poet born, warrior deceased
