Forgotten Gem

A Poem by Marvin Lewis Jr.

This was written by a friend of mine, she's just gotten her work copy-written and she's ready to test the Writer's cafe waters! lol

 "Forgotten Gem" 

By "Anonymous" 

Sometimes a clouded mind is more beautiful than a clear day more pleasant than a classical masterpiece is the dreamer's  relentless beating heart,


The canvas called life is full of many colors that absorbs priceless art.

 

But we depict our feelings not with brushes but prayers that angels place underneath the nostrils of God.


The aroma of our pain ascends to a location where God is now touched with our feelings and delivers our healing.


Moments after the unshackling this cryptic appearance takes off into oblivion like smoke in a chimney.


No longer can our pain be found restoring a freedom that won't allow us to ever be bound and once again sleep is ever so sound.


As we return to the space we inhabited when the earth was dark and quiet than one phrase from God enabled it to carry melody and become enlightened.

Its because of His precious gift we have hope in dying,


So with our natural mind we need to stop trying to keep from crying, cause it keeps the mind feeling like it is frying, when we say we don't feel pain we are only lying ever tying  us to a life full of sighing.


God never wanted for our lives to cease He is just trying to give us the ultimate release.


So under all that has sought to bind and blind He wants you to find His one of a kind mind.

"The aroma of our pain ascends to a location where God is now touched with our feelings and delivers our healing."

Your friend has a great grasp on the use of pointed metaphors to set the scene........A great first write indeed.......Encourage her to let the feelings that flow deeply within rage through her finger tips........as fast as she can type or write.......irregardless of perceived reaction or judgement from others........Lay it down precisely as she feels it and tweak it from there........The hardest part is releasing it and placing it on the alter of human critique...........Only then can God connect the words with the eyes out there in the world that are meant to feel them.......Critics can be helpful or they can be ignored........:-) Thanks for sharing my Brother........

Marvin, thanks for sharing this, speaks on many levels, your friend produced a quality insight, based on
spiritual value and believe, the core of fath in action, there are many pinnicle lines expressed to height,

that in turn draw the reader to a state of contemplation, dwelling upon eternity, God, Heaven,
and all thing inbetween, the substance that defines this writing is composed of many different aspect

at the same time interwoven as one core idea, and everything that causes the heart to think.
the metaphorical analogies are rendered with great perspective.
Take Care, Mike

People who aren't from any religious background will be able to feel this. The unique structure a strong point. The power of the sentiments are amazing. Thanks for sharing.

Yeah! This is a great piece of writing, The imagery is just beautiful!
Though I'm not happy with the end..I mean it is a kind of abrupt end and I was expecting better than that!
But overall , it is a great piece of writing! Way to go!!!
