13th Installment of my series (Gail)

Pure Like Flowing Water

When I was young and just produced
The gentle springs from which I came
Told me that each day holds a thousand gifts
And we accept them just the same
I took that advice to pure heart
And made a vow it’d always stay
I blessed the springs that gave me life
Before time took them away
Afraid and alone I silently thought
Of the pain that had entered my soul
I looked for a nice secure home
And a purpose to regain control
River by river and lake by lake
I made my way through life
Trying to block out impaling images
That brought back the pain and strife
After the journey I found oasis
In a paradise unknown to me
The flowers produced delightful aromas
While reflection set me free
Unknown to me was the subtle poison
That took aim straight at my heart
The vitality I brought to the light in my life
Had started to fall apart
If it wasn’t for the outside factors
That turned my wrong to right
I wouldn’t have been right here
To survive another fight
I thank the ones who gave me life
For the knowledge instilled in me
As long as I’m here in the place of haven
My water flows quiet and free
