A hand curls into a fist
A limb misshapen
From some a perfect body is taken
But he who knows of imperfection
Knows greater truths beyond detection
Many look with pity on the soul
Who they picture as not quite whole
Oh, what a shame!
They do proclaim
But they do not understand
The true nature of man
The body is nothing but a tool
An instrument to help you through this school
The soul’s the part that matters most
The body only plays the host
It matters not if limbs are twisted and gnarled
If when one walks, the feet get snarled
But how one walks the path of life …
Oh, such importance please give here
For when you live here
This is paramount
On this one thing you can count:
The soul’s growth matters not on outward looks
It comes not from things you read in books
But from your actions and your thought
These things surely can’t be bought
A life of service can you give to others
Loving and helping your sisters and brothers
Even if the body is bent
Your last penny here you’ve spent
There’s always love inside, so much to give
For this great service does each man live
To you it seems a pity true
To see one whose body is lesser than you
But pity not until you know
If the soul inside t’ward the light does grow
For this each soul does come to earth
This is the purpose of each man’s birth
Whether you walk with a firm, straight step
Or haven’t mastered walking yet
This matters not a bit
If the body doesn’t fit
What matters is the spirit inside
From this truth you cannot hide
Treasure life for all it offers
Digging deeply into the coffers
Of wisdom and truth
And grow, my children grow.
For this you have come.
We thank you for your time.
Love one another.
It is all we ask.
About the Poetry
All of the poems in this blog are spirit-inspired. Every word came to me each day for a full year while in deep meditation. I simply wrote what I heard onto a pad of paper in my lap with eyes closed – meaningful, multi-stanza verses in mere minutes. I was unaware of each poem’s theme until I transcribed it later word for word. Each day brought new and wondrous discoveries about the world beyond our five physical senses, incredible wisdom, and messages of hope which I share with you in this blog. The last poems received are displayed below on this page, but the entire collection of 365+ poems are archived here in the left-hand column. You can search by topic or keyword using the search box in the upper left corner. May you find among them just the right message which speaks to your heart.
