Another day begins,
Will I explore my soul within?
Easily get busy,
Heart becomes dizzy.
To not get stuck in quagmire.
Courage to say no,
Rest in love's glow.
Treasure buried deep,
In undiscovered soul's keep.
Locked behind vaults impenetrable door,
Combination to unlock found when explore.
Explore the hidden places,
Discover own motive of why.
Soul longs to come alive,
Spirit man yearning to thrive.
Chipping away at hardened heart,
Hear the chisel ring when hammer's strike starts.
Protective encasement releases,
All coping and numbness ceases.
Love makes supple and new,
When give up and thought through.
Seed that fell in the ground,
In due season it grew.
