The Uplifting of My Soul
Uplifting this inner voice…
Embodied in me,
words and thoughts I cannot dispute,
for it is inherent, an echo of past,
whether my ancestry, in silent reach,
or my inner voice, my essence breached;
I know not the source,
but do know the words be truth for me,
and so this silent dialogue ensues,
and my soul does listen intently.
Within us a world of knowledge,
some conscious, some in waiting,
yet this silent friend avows aid,
in ways I cannot construe,
but I know I must listen,
for these angels within, know,
and learn I must for my life,
to understand my reason is not enough,
but together we shall ensue.
In the silence of my aloneness,
I often hear their thoughts unfold,
like a narration for me alone,
and it invigorates my mind to seek,
all that they in whisper speak,
and as we two meld and knowledge finds place,
I feel the grace bestowed upon me,
given out of love
and for the uplifting of my soul.

How beautifully penned and how beautiful to know thyself. Wonderful work, Tony.
Thanks so much Phyllis, so pleased you enjoyed the work. Take care.
What a lovely, inspiring poem Tony..in all our religious texts it is said that if we learn to listen and follow correctly our inner voice, our lives will be more fruitful..because a portion of divinity lies within ourselves though only a few get enlightened enough to understand it..thank you so much for sharing..
So glad you understand and appreciate my thoughts Anjana. Hope you’re enjoying the site, you work is a joy to read. Take care.
