Glow

no other light filled me

as it had on that day

my body was aglow

and I felt the Spirit

its lightness and freeness

that I had never known

He called out to me

and I heard clearly

I had been awakened

by the power of truth

my doubt passed from me

scales fell from my eyes

feeling my body tremble

as our fingers intertwined

and my soul was saved


This poem is about my personals feeling regarding a new and beginning religious experience in my life. These thoughts are only my own, and I do not wish to impose them on others. I wholeheartedly believe that everyone has the right to believe what they want. All the same, I hope you enjoyed this more intimate poem.

Thank you so much for reading!

the pretender

she was never asleep

but the others all were

it was best not to

awaken them, frighten them

they knew nothing else

had nothing else

only this constant rest

nothing other than this state

of blissful unknowing

she pretended to snooze

well enough as she could

they couldn’t know that

she was awake, never sleeping

because she would lose

her bed forever
