In the Garden

Folder: 
Just a thought!

My bones now brittle, my soul compromised,

I relinquish my sins to the Devil.

Take me Dark Lord, Let me live by your side,

Give me sustenance to rid my affliction.

Yea, though I walk in a pestilent Garden,

I will sow all your seeds of despair...

The righteous condeemed to eternal damnation,

Their souls weeping blindly, in the abscess of time.

Wrap my ankles in ivy, pull me down in the darkness,

Let me live in the blackness of hell..

No more shall I weep to a mythical creature...

My bones forever sown,

                              "In the Garden."

"God's unfortunate psychadelic lily" by sharee givens

i accept myself as God's unfortunate psychadelic lily.
consider the fact that i have only 6 petals but my root (soul) is dry to the bone.
as a flower on vacation from God's permanent garden, i seek temporary refuge
in the presence of a FAITH FILLED Gardener.
water me with:
1 Faith (Your relationship with God, so my faith (leaves) won't become transparent)
2 Unconditional Love (Unconditional Love that is blind, deaf, and speechless to all my flaws inside out & outside in)
3 Joy (Joy that is everlasting in mind, body, and spirit)
4 Freedom (Freedom to be who we truly are to brighten the world but remain close enough to share in each others destiny)
5 Compassion (Compassion to respect the world but wise enough to follow only your heart)
6 Responsibility (Responsibility to forgive the past and accept the future with no expectations)
P.S.
to offer my companionship will be the only richness of us, for i am poor in everything especially a hand to hold.

acceptance. this is who i am.

IN THE GARDEN-NEL MIO GIARDINO-ITALIAN--(Quatrain)

NEL mi giardino, ho fatto vedere

una fata indietro mi fissa va

disteso in un letto di tulipano

stelle spumante sua testa tonda.
