A Poem I Wrote


There is a part of who I am more valuable than jewels .
It acts on its on without control, it follows no man's rules.
Free as an eagle, wild as the lion, it lives where it belongs.
Deeply embedded within me it dwells, this Spirit keeps me strong.

Never does it leave me nor let me down; always it sustains.
It shines through from the inside out and filters all the pains.
No matter what flesh and bones go through this part of me goes on.
And as of late it is this part of me I mostly rely upon.

It is able to soar as high as a dove in wide open spaces,
No matter what terrible things my physical body faces.
It stays strong long after my body is spent
This Spirit of mine shall never ever relent.

If you look closely you might catch a glimpse in my weary eyes.
It can never break or bend, no matter how hard Life tries.
No person or a thing can take away this strength I've found inside of me.
This Spirit of mine shall forever remain wild and strong and free.

Robbin,

Thats very beautiful and inspirational. It has a very Native American nature-sense and resilience that I love. And it's all true; your strength is really shining and rising up to carry you through this difficult time.

Thank you Aisling, I thought the same thing about a Native American thing going on with it but I wasn't sure anyone would recognize that, but YOU did and that's because you always "get" me. My spirit has kept me strong for sure, and I wanted to express how very much it has. My body may get weak, my mind gets so tired but that fire that burns within me Never lets me down. Thank you, it means a lot to me that you liked it.
