Inspiration Comes From Within

Inspiration Comes From Within

I’m involved in all aspects, so am I—

Nothing less than some small inclinatioN?

Splashes of water off a dewy cresS

Passions of life in each grassy footsteP

I trust in God to be my stimulI,

Relinquish all my sins as my savioR

Ascertain my eyes through panoramA

Teaching that trepidation holds no parT

In each vision my mind’s a TsunamI,

Overcoming iniquity, and sO,—

Now God is my inspiratioN


Can my own heart be apologetiC,

Omitting my evils for the halO?

Mind over matter the paradigM…

Explains my vocation to be humanE.

So I sanctify and shield from serpentS


For sovereignty of mind and the proof oF

Reality, deep in a soul, to conqueR—

One’s purging sins, to becoming angels toO

Maybe then, life can have optimisM


Where one can go out and hinder sorroW

Imbue others with insight, let them know, I—

Trust in clear judgment and conscious thoughT

How happily I plan to astonisH

In us flows the credos of the MagI

Navigated by our own inspiratioN.

      Yeah this one was tough my friend. The words ending in I are super challenging and very limited. Thank you so much for your comments my friend.
