Now I Bow Before You, My Life is Yours

There is a spark that lives within me.
Sometimes I can feel it and sometimes I can't.
I want the spark to turn into fire
So that I can burn until
All that is left is You


I AM a free woman.
I AM free to be devoted to the multiverse, beyond and in between
I AM free to be devoted to You, to Man
Devoted to Ideal, to Creature, to Teacher
I AM free to burn with the fire of Love
Free to suffer the yearning for Truth
I AM free to walk the Way
Free to search for the Key to Mystery
Free to wish for Growth and Enlightenment
In Myself and in Others
I AM free to belong to You.


Every day, I forget to pray
But now I type my prayer
Using the keyboard
I pray for self-control
I pray for discipline
I pray for humility
I pray for patience


When I was a child
I would say, at night:
Now I lay me down to sleep
I pray the Lord my soul to keep
If I should die before I wake
I pray the Lord my soul to take
The truth is,
I have been sleeping for far too long.
I wish to wake before I die.

Dear Sophia,

Lovely poetry!

Here's one of mine:

Child's (?) Prayer

Now I lay me down to sleep
And hope for dreams of bliss.
I pray the Lord my soul to keep;
His wish may I not miss.
If I should die before I wake,
May He make loved ones glad.
I pray the Lord my soul to take
But let folks not be sad.

being without Being.
That's the thing.

I am far from perfect. I have lots of things to work on but then I worry if I think too much about what I need to work on I'd be too focused on myself. I don't know where the balance is.

Hi Alex,

That is so sweet, especially your wish that your loved ones not be sad.

The thing that frightens me most about death is the sadness I know my mom, dad, sister and husband will feel.
