Gifts of Insight

Predictions tell what will form next,
exotic tools of ancient text,
withstanding time, jumping through test,
advice will tell “Which path is best”.

Spiritual soul, science filled mind,
pulls messages from deep inside,
tell mute stories that run and hide.
some will be tough, others are kind.

At times we choose to blind insight,
not see the truths, instead we sigh,
let other perceptions be right,
rely within another’s light.

Devices that truly assist,
everyone carries unique gifts,
if self-belief comes to persist,
insecure fears will quickly lift.

Close both eyes to know what will come,
truth made for one, are lies to some,
people could laugh and claim its dumb,
until foreseen facts all become.

Prompt – Write a prose poem based on the featured image.

Beyond Doubt

Fluorescent thoughts rest in my mouth,
choke up inside mind full of doubts.
Chain deep set goals to barricade,
slice dreams apart till faith decays.

Sweet melodies held up inside,
vibrations pierce, emotions hide.
Outer details sting eager eyes,
inner courage does not arise.

Sounds penetrate through every pore,
to gently rest within my core.
A whispered scream strangles my fears,
swallow all words, gifts to my ears.

“Accept yourself,
be who you are.
Jump off the shelf,
so hopes fling far.
Not every wish
could be appeased,
spirits flourish
with grace and ease.
Some will love you,
others will hate.
Always be true
then leave to fate.
Feelings you hold
are vital too.
Do not let molds
control your views.”

Full moonlit covered heart and soul,
a peaceful sense of pure control.
Goosebumps draped from head to toe,
assured tomorrow shines and glows.
