Here's a poem I wrote in August last year, and I hope you enjoy it.
Part of my heart finally feels like singing
And my enclosed emotions feel like ringing;
Breaking forth from where they’ve been
Hidden, and they shall rise again to be seen.
God made this world full of loveliness
But we’ve brought into it ugliness
Instead of the colour and love
That will set me free like a dove.
God made a beautiful world
But so many of us have killed
The true beauty within the soul;
We need to be again made whole.
Keeping our beauty hidden within us
Will rob the earth of who we really are, and thus
The beauty that will be lost
Will us our inner freedom cost
God is the restorer of all;
He can renew the call
To be ourselves and paint the land in a different shade.
Our hidden beauty must rise or else fade
People think that those who are different
Are eccentric but they don’t get the hint
That we’re the ones who throw
Colour into a grey world and make it glow
We can’t conform or the earth will stay
The dull shade of grey.
God can release the beauty hidden
And we will rise by the world unbidden.
