Soul Deep

Soul Deep

A Poem by Traci

At what point did innocence fade,

truth no longer existent?

no mortal soul knows.

 

Open minds are mirrors, doorways,

reflecting not who we are or were,

only what’s permitted to be seen.

 

Silken is the woven web, the very pattern of our lives

filled with splendor, treachery, protruding of thorns

upon the audacious, wilting rose.

 

Yet cynical is the mind, to what it truly perceives

for candid beauty is soul deep,

walking ... 



On the inside!

that's SOMETHING dear Traci, something BIG, I'm happy I found this, and happy to find that there is someone like You seems to think like me, I so understand what You mean, I might not be able to convey with my words what I want but I do understand, the immortal essence of us, that runs deep, beyond the body and the mind, those who keep it pure, original, those whom are able to save it through all the hardships and pain, without losing it, without getting it lost... those are (Beautiful Souls).

Mmmmm so much more than musings....🌹
yes, the real beauty is on the inside...beauty on the outside is fickle, changing, not trustworthy..it is the rose that will look beautiful but wilt and then just thorns left to sting our hearts.
But soul deep beauty, that is true beauty.

"Silken is the woven web, the very pattern of our lives

You are candid indeed when it comes to poetry and truth. It all starts from within as you wonderfully state. You weave all of that beauty with sincerity. Kudos.

All true. You are very welcome.
You have a spontaneous soul, one that speaks the language of the heart. You make me introspect and seek out a future in which I feel beautiful. Not many if any, could make me feel that way about myself. Thank you.
