The Only Way to Find yourself.
I thought somethings get washed away with time,
pain, guilt, shame, and all vices of the flesh.
But I heard while walking down the road of salvation,
that man is the sum total of his choices.
Good or bad they live within him, their nests are made and
graves dug deep down into the lands of his soul.
No matter how hard we try, we can only ignore but a little.
The evil we do follows us every single day we breathe,
some hold tight even in the afterlife.
So where then can one hide from himself?
Is there truly no sure escape?
Where can one put down the hand of guilt and shame?
That which even the cleanest of garments can’t cover and the strongest of wines can’t push away?
Where is one to hide from himself?
What is the path to purity after years of profanity?
On that same road, I found the answer,
It sounded strange and at odds with what anyone would expect.
However, it was the only way to redemption.
In one’s self will he find both the illness and the cure.
In one’s self is the ability to live, forgive, and dream.
In one’s self is a heart that can choose to love, hate and regret.
In one’s self is the ability to make amends for wrongs and bring for peace.
That same peace which he sought from outward things,
lives within him, if and only if he is ready to look within.
In one's self is a reflection of who he is, and who he can be.
In oneself only, can change truly be made.
Now wakeup, and find yourself…not outwardly but within.
I write happy stuff too, Here’s more from me.
