The Tears of Heaven

Tears from Heaven
Tears from Heaven

The tears of heaven fall upon
souls to be cleansed,
and in surrender, the rain may end our woes,
tears shed for us to accept,
to start anew in this human journey
and never to neglect providence.

Life provides all contingencies,
our needs always met,
but not always easy, for there
is a penance to pay for learning,
the pain of mistakes our attention,
so that we may appreciate the knowledge.

Out travail is just, always,
regardless of our pointless anger and blame,
as these are the lessons required,
the soul-needed experiences
that brings us closer to who we should be,
the person we hoped for.

We are all diamonds in the rough,
potential wrapped in gold,
but without the pain and suffering,
we never quite realise our goals,
and there are no shortcuts in life,
every day and moment needs to be whole.

Whining about the oppression,
the paranoid feelings of vengeful walls,
we may never see the other side,
where freedom is all there is,
and obstacles just momentary changes passed,
answers to questions asked.

There is equity is all of this,
if one sees it objectively,
but so difficult for some to achieve,
too close to the blade, too close the shave,
that may bring them down, in lessons profound,
wave after wave.

So patience is what we need,
a quiet mind and an empathy with struggle,
to know it’s for our growth, nothing personal,
and in that, learn to trust,
for life is the path we must ride
to find solace in the journey.

    “potential wrapped in gold” – I love that phrase, it holds so much meaning. Another great inspirational piece, Tony, which you do so well. I will pass this on to my grandson who is going through a rough time on his life journey. Thank you for writing this. Take care.
