Truth's at Spirit's Door

Truth's at Spirit's Door

A Poem by Song of Mercy

The healing of a fallen Christian



Mighty strength, Truth forsaken once again.
Spirit gasps at sea, salty, crashing within.
Soul carrying spirit, submerged as before,
Flailing then clutching oar, gasping towards shore.
Rock ‘Neath sea’s sand, literal Truth ties secure,
Broken by storm, vessel’s repairs to procure.
Searching Truth’s path through storms, it’s hard seeking stars,
As palm bent at root, fruit too ripe, falling far.
Again seeking sun ‘Neath boughs on frothy shore,
Warming, healing, hoping, for Truth’s at spirit’s door.
