Soul Searching Beyond the Veil
Soul searching beyond the veil
Is where I go when life is confusing,
When I have been hurt to the core
Due to my own dreams,
Dreams that filled me
With something to hold on to.
Unbidden and not planned,
Dreams came during deep slumber,
Showing a life of peace and joy,
A life full of love and happiness,
That reigned for eternity,
And settled in my soul.
I do not question the dreams
And what they hold for me,
But question my self for the way
I made known my thoughts
When I maybe should have
Kept them to myself.
The candor in which my emotions
Were expressed was far too open
And frank, when discretion was called for,
And private information
Should have been kept within
My heart and soul.
Soul searching will take some time
Before I am able to rise up again,
Able to forgive myself,
Go forward with faith in myself,
And remember there is a time
To express and a time to be silent.
I enter into the silence
Of my own little nook
Beyond the veil
And listen to the voice
Of my soul.

“Learn to get in touch with the silence within yourself, and know that everything in life has purpose. There are no mistakes, no coincidences, all events are blessings given to us to learn from.”
