|I can sense that the beast is at the door. So apropos for Halloween. Keep holding on tight and someday soon the wind will ease.

|Yet, I know you live by things such as the serenity pray.
The poem made me think of Reepicheep, in The Dawn Treader.
The internal war can be more exasperating than any external war.
Keep the bouncy faith, Tiggs xx

|An excellent title, chum, and one which rings clear in my own life. Love your internal rhyme in this. I am in complete agreement with your contention: "for the worldly goods that have no meaning". Your war is personal but you are not alone in it. Our source of strength is unwavering and will never leave us or forsake us. Powerful cathartic poetry. Peace and love and hugs ... richard|

|Surely a lot of insight with hard work, you must be exhausted, but you're on the right track, keep that in forefront of what always counts in the end and new beginnin, Keep on saying I am enough, just the way I am, everything else is mind, f.... well you know the rest.
Lots of Hugs! Jasmin Horst

|Fabulous sustained metaphor for the inner and outer battles that rage for so many of us, Eileen. Your conclusion really hit me, too: "after the same soul" is so true and we only have one, hence feeling ravaged and torn!! What hope for the world is there when the wild, untameable beast that is the heart within us which we know can torment US, let alone the rest of the world outside? Compound that by 7 million, as Dad keeps telling us, and... well, the mind boggles... We need the New Seekers to teach the world to sing again! :)) xx|

PS: Glad you're back; it's your turn to watch that old Jersey Devil.

|I can relate to what you express through your verses here, Eileen. I am fortunate that for over six months now, an angel (old soul) has come into my life and settled things down. I wish you love, peace, and all good things,

|This is confessional, Eileen,
that challenges me with its honesty,
with its depth and personal intimacy.

|Life outside our heart and our soul is just a movie. We can allow ourselves to be absorbed into it or we can stand back and use it to remind us of the way that we do not wish to live. Our life-bond is between us and God, the rest is just and E Ticket to a wild and crazy world. We can take it for a spin,for our own entertainment, if we wish but I highly doubt that it is really worth the price of buying it. Very nice offering, Eileen.

|This stanza blew me away, Eileen. Words are all that you smith.
Fighting the internal battle, when all
around the windows rattle, with the
outer forces that you cannot control
with both of them after the same
