Powerless Be the Taunter... a calling...

Powerless Be the Taunter

Fear and suppression no longer take hold
So be the glory of spirit and soul
Life and valor fill chambers of heart
From which anger and hurt do depart
God's power and reign within abide
Powerless be the taunter, the one to chide
Mind to fathom trove and treasure
Fulfillment and abundance in whole measure
The gift of knowing to mark this very day
Beauty, grace and truth, for blessed be The Way.

 a calling..


free from shackles and binding chain
free of oppression and the inane
free from daunting echoes of taunted souls
free from deception and imposed tolls
free to BE the Creator hails
for Beauty and Truth within prevails.
