The Secrets in your Soul

The critic will

analyse your words

to tell you

what they mean.

What gives him the right?

he hasn’t seen

what you have seen.

He wasn’t there

when your father died,

he couldn’t tell you

for how long you cried

He doesn’t know

the dark secrets in your soul

or what it would take

to make you whole.

How can he describe

the hurt you feel inside,

does he know

what it’s like

not to have any pride?

When you leave

your heart in something

you have wrote,

pay no attention

to the criticism,

just pray it may

get stuck in their throat.

  1. And if they dare to speak my message and claim it as their own soul because of pride, I will come to repossess their golden atom box. That was the gift my father gave to me. I am happy to give freely and share! That’s my story of my place in the world. But to unlock the secrets of the past requires more energy and focused diligence than I’m familiar with handling on my own without a hand to hold, remind my heart to stick to the straight and narrow. Divergence is play, but my soul remembers the great life work which it pledged it would take.
