'Tis Resolve

’Tis Resolve you do hail
And lifted is Doubt’s darkening veil
To Despair no bond shall you hold
Within is an unfinished story told
A vision, a being known divine
No longer betrayed by haunts of past time
Resolve and Freedom’s quest held anew
Beauty, Love and Truth your rightful due.

  1. This is something I need... but I'm afraid my resolve is still held captive by doubt... and fear.

  2. Tis beautiful. The picture and the words on the page. They bring upon a feeling of completion. We all need to be uplifted and your words are the ointment that do just that.

  3. Rose Marie, I see exactly what you meant in comment on mine. Neither you nor I live any longer in a corner in that dark jail-like room. It is the room of doubt and fear.

    Praise God for our release from the bondage of self. May we maintain it always.

  4. Cris, thanks for stopping by. Divesting one of doubt and fear has been a journey of Praise - it has marked many a tear and many a joy. Once aware of what holds us in bondage, confront and resolve become the liberators. This is what APOGEE Poet is all about. Blessings for all you do - as with our oceans - life itself is a sea of currents, tides and cresting waves.

  5. Joanne, your visits and responses bring a warm smile to heart, Thank you.

  6. Steve, such delight to share this knowing with you.
