No More

shackled no more for I am the wind free
silent no more for I am the thunderous storm
despairing no more for I am the dawning day
thirsty no more for I am lakes and rivers flowing clear
lost no more for I am the guiding stars
confined no more for I am vistas wide and far
hungry no more for I am bounty and harvest divine
this the awakened faith mine
this the awakened faith mine.

  1. wonderfully visual!

  2. Rose Marie - oh how I needed this image,these words. You see, a friend befriended, decided to step aside/away from me - had other gardens to tend I suppose - broke my heart. I know in part it is because of my having MS, broke my heart - I felt weakened and unworthy - but I am rising up - I am worthy - and I am all things good in friendship and in life - yes, I am worthy - and yet, a part of me weeps, still.
    Love to you my friend
